Nude Mannequins Protest Against Synthetic Fabrics During NYFW
America's Cotton Producers and Importers create a creative platform to discourage retailers from using cheap, fast fashion materials.
Remember that time when you put your shirt in the dryer it metamorphosed into a XXS and came out with tiny lint balls all over it? This is caused by the use of the synthetic, cheap materials that have become a staple of fast fashion. Well, at this year’s New York Fashion Week, people are taking to the streets in protest. A group of naked, plastic mannequins have been stationed in Gansevoort Plaza, one of the epicenters of NYFW events — just a few blocks away from the Milk Made runways and the exclusive after show parties at The Standard, and are carrying protest signs to make their “voices” heard.
