Designer Collaborates With NYC Sanitation Department On Sustainable Fashion Project
The collection features reused and recycled labor uniforms to make green-living effortlessly cool
The 2016 Spring/Summer New York Fashion Week yielded an eco-friendly collaboration between Heron Preston and the Department of Sanitation of New York (DSNY). Dubbed “UNIFORM,” Heron Preston‘s presentation featured garments appropriated from the city's sanitation workers including long sleeve cottons, crewnecks and windbreakers of solid greens and orange hues. Preston's embroideries and prints proudly portray DSNY's sigil and lettering, bringing a clean 80's flair to a classic blue collar uniform.
