Main Project Aspirations: Sweatshirt Designing

When I had first started thinking of inspiration for this project, I wanted to work with something I enjoy and am passionate about. I started thinking about all of the opportunity behind clothing, and how you can make a piece of clothing out of really any material if you design and construct it right. So, for this project I’m going to be designing and constructing a sweatshirt, and maybe a collection of clothing (tee shirt, sweatpants, etc).

With my major being advertising, I am constantly getting to know new brands and learning what is popular in our modern culture. Right now, there is a huge trend of brands releasing very basic, staple hoodies. Even higher end brands, like Supreme, Aime Leon Dore, and Balenciaga are tapping into this trend. I think it would be really fun and an interesting process to find the fabric, create the design, possibly add design, and sew together my own sweatshirt. I would like this project to look cool, feel comfortable, and fit well, but I would be satisfied if it wasn’t perfect because this is my first time trying anything like this.

I want to achieve an overall basic, modern, sleek aesthetic. It will like be analogous colors and have minimal design features.

  • Hi Hailee. It’s so good that you’re challenging yourself to make your own hoodie from scratch. Perhaps to make it dynamic you can experiment with conductive cloth. If you attach lights or other hardware to (or through it), you could program it to light up, make noise, or something of the sort

  • I like the idea of creating clothes from scratch that sounds like a really cool sewing project. However the main project needs to be dynamic in some way and I’m curious what you will do to make it dynamic.
