RISD is one of two colleges nationwide invited to show original student work at the 2010 American Craft Council Show.
Students won major recognition
and cash prizes in the ELLE + RISD Fashion Next competition and runway show,
which was presented as part of New York’s Fashion Week.
Textiles majors created one-of-a-kind wearables to showcase in Zegna Baruffa’s exhibition space at Pitti Immagine Filati, an international showcase in Milan for high-end yarns and knitwear.
Co-founded by RISD Professor Elizabeth Dean Hermann, the Institute for Sustainable Urban Societies develops innovative solutions to the complex issues facing dense metropolises in the world’s most endangered coastal zones.
