Holly McQuillan’s work in the field of zero waste fashion design, articulates sustainable fashion systems and practice. She focuses on issues such as transition design, the impact of technology and how these can challenge established design, production and use practices. Holly co-authored Zero Waste Fashion Design with Timo Rissanen and together they are currently writing the second edition. She also co-curated Yield: Making fashion without making waste, the first contemporary exhibition focussing on zero waste fashion, and developed the award winning open-source zero waste resource Make/Use. Their work always seeks to broaden the impact of zero waste and sustainable fashion design through research, publication, workshops and lectures. Holly’s PhD explored zero waste systems thinking through the innovative design and production of textile-forms.
