Fast Forward Future: Fashioning Feral Childe

Feral Childe, Fashion Designers NYC - Can two artists make a difference in the consumer marketplace? Feral Childe says yes! Feral Childe believes that art, style, sustainability and profitability can all co-exist and counter the tides of fast fashion.

In this lecture, Feral Childe reflects on its history, interdisciplinary creative process, and the rewards and challenges of producing a sustainable apparel line in New York City.

Feral Childe is a fashion label by bi-coastal design duo Moriah Carlson (Brooklyn, NY) and Alice Wu (Oakland, CA), who both come from a fine arts background. Each season, Feral Childe's collaborative drawings form the basis of the collection's textile prints, wry construction details, and absurdist accessories to make smart, wearable silhouettes for forward-thinking women.
