Bridging a Gap Between Food and Fashion
NyLaurent Visual Design Agency is creating beauty with zero carbon footprint by combining traditional waste and redesigned vintage fashion
Most wouldn’t equate food with fashion, but the two worlds do intersect and have more in common than previously thought.
Food and fashion are the two industries that every consumer interacts with on a daily basis. Pulling creative inspiration from the two worlds with the objective to raise awareness about the detrimental effects of our capitalistic consumption is necessary to create change. Art can be inspired by natural elements especially when incorporating couture and thought provoking fashion.
This is the big picture: Everyone needs to feed themselves and everyone needs to clothe themselves. The source of where food and clothes come from DO matter and are related to issues with sustainability and environmentalism.
NyLaurent Visual Design Agency specializes in zero carbon footprint photoshoots geared towards marketing and staying true to a brand’s aesthetic while maintaining ethical standards. The CEO, Nyleve Henry wants to spark discussion and create more awareness on how food and clothing are mixed with culture and hopes to reduce environmental impact.
In a recent carbon footprint free photoshoot, Henry and her team utilized food and rubble as accessories while maintaining a high fashion profile, bringing the subjects closer together. Set in a junkyard with models eating pizza and posing in custom designs, Henry proves that beauty is found everywhere, and people can upcycle materials to create something new, edgy, dynamic and inspiring.
The process of manufacturing fabrics for clothes, growing crops and raising cattle for food is a cause of major pollutants. The use of pesticides causes harm in the form of runoff when wastewater is deposited into rivers, oceans or lakes. Clearing land for cattle and feed destroy forests and other valuable ecosystems. Cotton farming alone is responsible for a quarter of all pesticides used in the United States. With so much going on, consumers are becoming more aware and opting for more ethical methods of eating and dressing.
In a previous article, we stated that sustainability is a rising trend. People are taking action and responsibility for creating a more green future.
