Dispose: Heron Preston x DSNY
DISPOSE: HERON PRESTON X DSNY
Inspired by New York City’s initiative to be waste-free by 2030, this exhibition branded by Heron Preston and The New York Department of Sanitation educates the public on the harmful social, societal, and environmental impacts on our planet from the fast fashion industry. Dispose encourages us to reflect, question, and change our society’s mentality on disposability.
Fast fashion is a phenomenon in the fashion industry whereby production processes are expedited in order to get new trends to the market as quickly and cheaply as possible, usually stealing other designers' original work along the way. Second to oil, the fashion industry is one of the largest polluters in the world.
Plan + Circulation
The exhibition installations are sequential and curated to communicate messages of awareness, familiarity, and reflection. In order to guide visitors through a clear understanding of fast fashion's impact, Dispose is set in a one-direction circulation with a clear entrance and exit.
