Love Letter: Timo Rissanen

“The BF+DA has been a central hub of fashion and sustainability conversations in New York during the past five years. I was there at the launch party and I will be there at the farewell celebration. In between I have been to a ton of events at the BF+DA. One of my favorites was the book fair in 2016, spending a day with colleagues I respect deeply, all of us sharing our books with a highly engaged gathering. I am deeply grateful to Debera, Amy, Tara and everyone else who have made the BF+DA such a welcoming, home-y place to come to each time. New York won’t be the same without you but it also isn’t the same because of you, and for that I am thankful. Thank you.”

Timo Rissanen, Assistant Professor of Fashion Design and Sustainability at Parsons School of Design, The New School
