Last Day of Class


The five graduating students and me

Finally, the semester is over and so is my Active Sportswear Design class. Five of my students just graduated  (the others have one more year to go). The graduating students came from Istanbul to New York to finish their fashion design studies at FIT. The program was especially designed for the exchange students to build upon their previous studies in their home country. During the semester, all students  not only designed and created Active Sportswear outfits but also Active Sportswear inspired Street wear.
Well, this means we talked a lot about innovations in textiles and especially about the use of high tech fabrics in Active Sportswear, and we worked a lot on pants, pants, and again pants.  I loved it, we  had a great time even though ------ the class started at 8 am.
I wish the best of luck to all of my students and congratulations to those who graduated!!!!

The Sweatshirt


Talking about High Tech fabrics and working with students on active sportswear designs, +++ is definitely inspiring. The faux leather was supposed to turn into an evening dress, but then everything changed.
My newest design
Square cut out black soft faux leather sweatshirt with industrial zipper detail in red and contrasting arrangement of faux leather face with brushed, suede like, soft, stretch knit backing.
The design combines a clean, elegant style with great comfort. With its kimono cut and attached sleeves, the extended back, and the large front pocket it is dressy but keeps its cool attitude.
The all over squared cut outs allow air to pass through the faux leather and provide great breathability.
