Description

A sustainability concept of “Design Light” is achieved by creating multifunctional garments. With a product that performs multiple functions, we can do more with less and leave less environmental footprints (Fletcher, 2008). In the “Shades of Scenery” series, my goal was to create versatile garments using sustainable strategies (Whang & Haar, 2009; Whang, 2012). For this project I utilized the “Design Light” concept to create a versatile coatdress for career women.
