Mann Library, Lobby
Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

Booming fast fashion has made stylish clothing more affordable than ever before, but costs to industry workers and the natural environment have been serious. Issues include rising global carbon emissions, microplastic pollution of the world’s oceans, and widespread pesticide use, to name just a few.  “Sustaining Style” explores ideas and innovations being investigated here at Cornell University and around the world to realize a more sustainable way of producing and consuming fashion.

The Cornell community and Ithaca area public are warmly invited to join us on Thursday, March 23, 4:30 p.m.  for a  reception celebrating our spring 2023 exhibits  (Mann Library Gallery, 2nd floor). 

Mann Library is pleased to present "Sustaining Fashion" as part of the "Threads of History: Textiles Across Cornell" programming occurring on the Cornell campus in.  2022/2023.  Other exhibits and events taking place at Mann Library as part of this programming include:
