Anthropologie, 2010

For their 2010 Mentor Projects, the Fashion Department pursued designers that were committed to sustainability and social responsibility.  The department suggested specific direction, and the designers overwhelmingly responded to the concept of being involved in a sustainable project. 

Anthropologies’ inspiration was taken from the documentary “Grey Gardens” based on the life of Edith Bouvier Beale and her mother.  The direction was to create an eclectic mix of used clothing – piled on and mixed together creatively.
