Laundry Lab, a student brand within EVIT’s Fashion Design & Merchandising program, will showcase the students’ latest body of work – Metamorphx – at Scottsdale Fashion Square in May on the second floor of the fashion center’s newly renovated luxury wing, just a few steps across the walkway from Macy’s. The exhibition opened Saturday, May 1.

Laundry Lab is a student-led, multi-disciplinary design collective in the Fashion & Design Merchandising program at the East Valley Institute of Technology. The collective is advised by EVIT fashion instructor Landry Low, who herself is an alumna of the EVIT fashion program and the prestigious Pratt Institute design school in New York.

“Equal parts fashion collection and visual merchandising installation, Metamorphx is a reflection on students’ experiences, obstacles and achievements during the past year and a half of social-distancing, quarantining and navigating interactions remotely,” Low said.

The exhibition at Scottsdale Fashion Square is designed to be viewed from windows, looking in, Low said. But soon, the EVIT fashion program will be launching a new website where viewers can experience the exhibit in a more immersive way. The website will also include an exhibition film produced in collaboration with EVIT’s Video Production program that serves as both a living “look book” and a detailed walk-through of the exhibition and collection. The website will also have an accompanying online-only pop-up shop of one-of-a-kind garments and accessories made by the students. For updates, follow @LaundryLab_ on Instagram.

With a focus on collaboration, divergent thinking, communication and problem-solving, EVIT’s two-year Fashion Design & Merchandising program allows high school juniors and seniors to explore college and career opportunities in a creative industry.

“This experimental studio environment empowers students to envision, create and pursue a path of passionate productivity,” Low said. “Students successfully complete their EVIT experience with industry credentials, college credit and hands-on technical training, allowing them to become competitive in the global workforce.”
