dc.description.abstract <p>The purpose of this design ensemble was to create a sustainable, yet functional, athletic wear outfit for our industry partners, Reebok. Considerations we had to take into account were the entire lifecycle of the garments, as well as highlighting local talent, regional manufacturing, and environmentally beneficial materials. Using materials such as Chitosan, a 92% polyester/8% spandex blend with the only antibacterial bio-agent finish certified by the EPA, natural dyeing techniques, and partnering with a local textile design studio, the ensemble illustrates how technical and sustainable attributes can be combined. Overall, the design showcases the body by using asymmetric lines and the subdued color scheme creates an edgy look that is wanted by Reebok's customers.</p>
