Querencia Studio’s third collection, SURFACE LEVEL, was developed for the United Nations’ Framework Convention on Climate Change. With a short notice, this exercise in sustainable fast fashion was handmade in New York using up-cycled fabric from FabScrap.
Fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world behind oil. In order to properly address this issue, the runways of fashion week cannot be the only place fashion is presented and discussed. By presenting and discussing SURFACE LEVEL at COY13 in Bonn, Germany, we are exploring new formats for fashion presentations.
This collection addressed United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), 13 (Climate Action), 14 (Life Below Water) and 17 (Partnerships for the Goals).
