2020/21 Design Brief

WOOL ON THE GO

 

Do you catch a bus to school or skate to a friend’s house, or use an electric scooter to meet up with family on the weekend? You may not have realised the clothing you wear could help you on your commute.

There is a growing trend for people to change the way they travel across their towns and cities, choosing more eco-friendly modes and reassessing the clothing they wear. This may be clothing to provide protection from the weather, embedded with technology to track health and performance, or versatile, comfortable fabrics allowing a transition from the commute to the destination.

This year, we are asking students to design an outfit which is versatile, protective, dynamic and functional to aid your commute as you travel. Wool should be the hero fibre, making up at least 70% of the outfit, comprising up to 4 pieces.
