2014 S/S Williamsburg Fashion Weekend (long narrow strips),

All of this collection was made with the most common factory waste shape.  The long narrow pieces that are cut off from nearly every spread of fabric played out for pattern cut out.  The edges off the stacks of fabric are cut off and thrown away.  This is done so the pieces of the garments that re cut out fall on the weave the fabric is made from.  this is done so the fabric grain is perfectly on the grains vertical and horizontal axis.  This creates a lot of fabric that goes directly from the table into the landfills.
