Beatle, Bono Babes Dress Up Your Conscience at Eco-Fashion Show

You wouldn’t catch Fred Astaire in the 1935 men’s dressing gown at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. It’s a classic repurposing, made from a crazy quilt during the Great Depression.

The piece is in the show “Eco-Fashion: Going Green” at the institute’s museum, which displays more than 100 garments, accessories and textiles illustrating the relationship between fashion and the environment.
