Marlies Jongens

Responding to the overwhelming waste produced by the fast fashion industry, Jongens searched for a solution within her own wardrobe. For her senior design project, she researched, designed, and constructed sewing patterns that generated zero fabric scraps when assembled together. Jongens strived to design a practical everyday look in which she would feel comfortable and confident wearing. Her ZER0 WASTE Apparel features a tank top, button-up t-shirt, versatile pants, along with accessories.
