Pollima Material Revolution

During Los Angeles Fashion Week, sustainable-fashion consultant group Pollima brought together brands, designers, investors and manufacturers at downtown's Ren Gallery. The Oct. 13 event was organized by Pollima's founder Ardilla Deneys, as a celebration of sustainable-apparel manufacturing with a focus on ecologically sound materials that are made from waste or biological science, including textiles created from orange peels, mycelium, coconuts and kombucha.

"I started my company to help usher in the use of the most sustainable materials as quickly as possible," Deneys said. "By coming together to celebrate innovation with waste materials and biology, we are bringing the conversation ever closer to the mainstream."
