For the Wearables Fashion Faceoff contest, we asked six juniors at Moore College of Art & Design to come up with embroidery or screen-printing concepts to embellish a garment offered by Vantage Apparel. The designs are meant to complement athleisure outfits the students have been creating throughout the school year. As part of the contest’s educational aim, we encouraged representatives of Vantage to provide feedback on the students’ concepts and make suggestions on how best to translate them to their chosen medium.
We spoke with each of the contestants after they finalized their embellishment design with Vantage to find out more about their process and hear what they've learned about working in the decorated-apparel industry. Watch the video below to hear what Erin Keenan had to say.
