A new style of clothing is invading the closets of Ann Arbor fashionistas. Sustainable fashion is what it’s called; fashion produced by plants such as ferns, succulents and moss. The Matthaei Botanical Gardens looks into the role of plants and the environment at the holiday conservatory display Avant Gardens-Weaving Fashion and Nature Together. The exhibit is free and open to the public until January 8th.
