Rust Belt Fibershed x Praxis Fiber Workshop Present:
One Year, One Outfit
Participants of the first One Year, One Outfit Challenge are working as individuals or teams of up to three to design, source, and create one outfit (defined as 3 distinct garments or accessories) within a cohort of 50+ other makers. At the close of the season, participants will exhibit their completed outfits in November – December 2021 in the Praxis Gallery.
The goals of this undertaking are to:
– Provide a structure for imaginative, slow fashion to thrive
– Celebrate the incredible amount of local talent and production in our fibershed
– Connect folks to each other through bi-monthly cohort meetings where we can share projects, progress, hang-ups, connections, etc.
– Create a collection of stories and a body of work that will provide a glimpse of our unique region and steward our valuable material and human resources.
If you are interested in participating in One Year, One Outfit in the future, join the Praxis Fiber Workshop and/or Rust Belt Fibershed mailing list.
