Athleisure product prototype: Product Development/ Entrepreneurship course at PhilaU
Students were asked to design an athleisure garment for 2017 fall market in responding to the growing demand for casual, comfortable yet fashionable clothing. The vest below was create by two other teammates and myself. 

 

Very rough sketch of my vest idea.

I really wanted to create a pattern inspired by the sunset below for the inside lining but that would have made the retail cost too high for the private label my team chose.

The sunset during class with Prof. James Gutman was the inspiration for our colorways. My team decided we would offer the vest in Black, Purple, Raspberry, and Orange.

Sewing is not my strength but we did our best to create the vest. Looking back, I would have gladly paid another student to create the garment, It was a headache to make.
