Zero-Waste through Bobbin Lace with fashion designer Kara Quinteros

Through the desire to innovate within current fashion systems of production, Kara Quinteros designs around utilizing traditional techniques of bobbin lace to create zero waste, soil-to-soil, ethical and socially responsible garments while preserving a form of traditional craft. Using a transparent supply chain, from the raw materials to the finishing, each step of the system is heavily considered and designed upon. All hand-made, the collection is a labor of love, passion, and dedication to craft. In this show/talk, she will go over her ideation, system of making, and where she hopes to take this methodology in the future.
