Featuring the work of international fashion designers, including Zandra Rhodes and Yeohlee Teng, with a common thread of how the fabric is cut—and how much of it is wasted through the design process. All the exhibited garments have been created with little or zero fabric waste.

Curators, Holly McQuillan, from Massey University Wellington, and Timo Rissanen, from the prestigious Parsons The New School for Design, New York, (the inspiration for the television show, Project Runway), are also designers in the show. They share a passion for reducing waste, without compromising style for sustainability.
