Abstract

Fitting in to the fast-paced evolution of marching band uniforms, Afterglow reimagines the traditional marching band uniform by experimenting with wearable technology, new silhouettes, and garment sustainability to create a theatrical band uniform inspired by the afterglow of the sunset. The sunset begins with pink hues infiltrating the light blue sky, and as the sun reaches the horizon, brilliant purples, pinks, yellows, and oranges glide across the sky. A frenzy of overlapping and intermingling hues soon takes over before giving way to a pink afterglow remaining in the dark sky. The sunset symbolizes the transition from day to night, revitalizing those who take the time to observe it. This look showcases the climax of the sunset, where the sun reaches the horizon and the bright colors take hold of the sky. Worn by female marchers, this uniform epitomizes the current innovation and theatrics in marching band shows.
