Clothing made from recycled materials are the new fashion craze!
The #techstyle exhibition at MFA Boston features work by Alexander McQueen, Iris van Herpen, Hussein Chalayan and more. We can’t believe what kind of garments can be created with a 3D printer and some leftover materials!
Don’t miss out: the exhibition runs from March 6, 2016 – July 10, 2016 in the Henry and Lois Foster Gallery (Gallery 158).
