FEATURED STORIES
Sustainability at FIT This Summer    
Catch up on some exciting projects by our students.   

• Team Flora Fur—FIT students Isabella Bruski, Advertising and Marketing Communications, and Noah Silva, Fashion Business Management—are experimenting with milkweed and flax to create a luxurious “fur” from 100 percent plant material. In June, they won the Stella McCartney Prize for Sustainable Fashion at the Biodesign Challenge Summit.

• Analise Mehmet, Exhibition and Experience Design '18, developed an exhibition concept that would help empower millennial audiences to take action on climate change. “The news makes it seem so overwhelming that we can’t do anything about it,” she says.

• Fashion Design students Mitchell Henderson, Daniella Koller, and Monica Palucci—Team EcoLastane—came up with the idea for a spandex alternative using a protein found in oysters.
