Fresco showcased real circular fashion innovations, such as; a watch band made out of mycelium; a dress from deadstock silk, designed to minimize textile waste in production; the use of residualink, a conventional waste product; and, a scarf made of vegan peace silk, dyed with bacteria. See the making of Fresco’s ensemble by partners in the Circular Fashion Lab. The aim of this Lab is to disrupt fast fashion to advance a circular fashion industry.
