Academy of Art University upholds its commitment to educate designers on environmentally sound practices. This sustainable program is put into practice through Masamichi Matsushita’s use of organic wool as well as Christine Welcher’s womenswear collection. Christine collaborated with textile designer Lydia Timken and used organic color-grown cottons. Their collection was featured in San Jose Mercury News.
