Abstract

With the idea of “upcycling” in mind, this project presents the challenge to explore the various uses and potential designs with military wool and parachute fabric. This ensemble would be targeted toward the environmentally conscious market since it is upcycled from parachutes and wool. Given the design of the gown it is for occasions such as galas and formal eco conscious events.
