Aleksandra Gosiewski completed her bachelor's degree at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in 2017, where she majored in fashion design.
Pursuing an undergraduate degree at a creative school like FIT has provided a conduit for three of Aleksandra’s passions — design, innovation and sustainability — to merge into a focused set of goals for innovation and sustainable design within a circular economy for the fashion industry, and a clear vision of how to actualise them.
Aleksandra is a founding member of AlgiKnit, a biomaterials research group in New York.
The team is comprised of award-winning scientists and designers, creating an alliance between the two industries. AlgiKnit is working to transform the apparel ecosystem with rapidly renewable bio-based textiles.
