Fashion & Sustainability | A Fashion Workshop with BK Style Foundation

February 24, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join MFTA and BK Style Foundation online for a live sustainable fashion show and workshop. BK Style is a Brooklyn-based nonprofit, which showcases emerging designers and provides educational programs to young people interested in careers in fashion. For this special event, BK Style Founder Rick Davy will lead a team of designers to guide attendees through a workshop on the art of draping fabrics and reusable materials from the MFTA warehouse to create upcycled fashion designs.

MFTA presents this event in collaboration with Rent the Runway, which has donated hundreds of accessories to MFTA. We are proud to feature accessories from Rent the Runway in this workshop. This presentation will be live-streamed to YouTube, where attendees can participate by submitting questions for BK Style during the event.*
