Designer Mimi Prober is a leader in the zero-waste fashion movement, repurposing vintage lace and fabric remnants from the 1920s and earlier—with stunning results. Prober says, “I believe sustainability in design, zero-waste fashion, is the future. There are many ways to utilize the concept—from pattern to draping to the recycling of textiles. From both an environmental and economic standpoint, there is no reason why materials should ever be wasted. Big change always starts small, and the designers of this generation are increasingly becoming aware of the need for industry change."
