Your clothing choices can represent your values. It is important for everyone to be aware of how their clothing came to be, and here in the Bay Area we have a plethora of companies and businesses tackling the astounding issues of overproduction and lack of ethical, sustainable, and efficient manufacturing methods. Working with Kohl’s, I aim to shed light on these solutions—mainly, the applications of blockchain and big data analytics within the fashion industry, alongside collecting wearable technology and garments from local environmentally and socially conscious companies. Styling these clothes in images representative of different aspects of the Bay, I will create a photo-book to synthesize both my research and the clothing solutions and technologies I have discovered.
