Fashion designer Erin Robertson has joined us this winter as our Coach-in-Residence, leading a studio called "Solarpunk Fashion." Erin is the winner of Project Runway Season 15 and the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America Teen Vogue Scholarship. Her work has been featured in Marie Claire, Nylon, Teen Vogue, Forbes, Elite Daily and more. Students in Solarpunk Fashion are creating conceptual fashion that reaches for inspiration from the internal self out to the solar system. Solarpunk is a plausible near-future sci-fi genre which takes on historical aesthetics and a connection with crafts and handwork, combined with a sustainable future. Students are combining traditional hand crafts with digital fabrication.
