Levi Strauss Back To School

Levi Strauss Back To School

Levi Strauss & Co.is working with the Rhode Island Institute of Design (RISD) to encourage sustainable design education. The thrust is fashion design, but students in programs such as graphic design and interior architecture are joining those from the apparel design and textiles programs. The collaboration emerges from Fabric Transformation Takes Form, a five-week program the apparel company and the design college launched last week. The mission: to embed ecological thinking into the fashion industry as early as possible. Paul Dillinger, Senior Director of Global Design within Levi’s Dockers division, is one of the participants; Dillinger will work with art and design students to intertwine fashion and sustainability within a product. Students and instructors will try to collaborate to find new approaches towards the foundation of fashion design: the sewing, cutting and manipulation of fabric. Additional Levi’s designers are expected to arrive at the end of the program to critique projects and offer advice.
