• 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.
• 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.
Did you notice FIT's recent shout-out on the CW's Jane the Virgin? 😍 We'd love to have Diane Guerrero visit our campus any time!
