Business Insider: Alice + Olivia debuted a sustainable Fall 2020 collection at New York Fashion Week
Bendet also presented a few items which were codesigned with Zero Waste Daniel, a clothing line known for its commitment to producing fashion with no waste. Silverstein, founder of the line, is one of many social entrepreneurs hoping to help curb fashion’s rampant problem.
For the collaboration, Zero Waste Daniel took the excess fabric from the Fall 2020 collection and created embroidery designs for existing Alice + Olivia pieces. Excess fabric in fashion is usually discarded and thrown into landfills, so by reusing old pieces, Alice + Olivia was able to reduce the amount of waste the collection otherwise would have produced.
