Threads: A Student Texploration is a showcase of fashion collections that have been designed and developed in the Senior Studio elective class as part of the Fashion Development and Product Management program in the Wilson College of Textiles. Each Fall semester, students from the Fashion Development and Product Management program at NC State University’s Wilson College of Textiles showcase designs that have been developed in Senior Collection Studio. These senior designers have created, developed, and produced an industry quality collection, emphasizing ideation, theme development, fit and fabrication. Threads is a showcase of talent, creativity, and skill; it is a culmination of techniques learned over the years through various courses in the FDPM concentration.

Designer: Kathryn Kittrell
Design Inspo: Kathryn’s collection features clothing that enables its wearer to go through their daily lives comfortably, while maintaining fashion trends. Dresses that are convertible to a jumpsuit, jumpsuits that disconnect, and pockets with every look are a few of the features that she aims to achieve within Hidden Functions. She wants her collection to embody the message that it is possible to wear functional clothing and maintain femininity.
Designer: Anna Henry
Collection Inspo: Anna is creating a co-ed athleisure collection for the athletes of Special Olympics North Carolina. It is bold and colorful, aiming for each athlete to stick out from any crowd or competitor. The entire line will be based on cotton’s durability, breathability, and ease of care, allowing the athletes to maintain the life of their own clothing. With the basic block styles, each athlete should feel comfortable with the ability to go anywhere and do anything in these garments. Anna chose this idea to not only challenge herself, but to have fun creating each outfit and working with the athletes and their families throughout the duration of semester.

Designer: Mallory Hayes
Collection Inspo: Efficace & Actif, French for Efficient and Active, is a collection developed for active, working woman. The garments in this collection are designed for the women who work in a business casual to a business professional environment. However, with a quick change of shoes, they are also ready for the gym, creating the idea of “work to workout”. There is no more worrying about forgetting gym clothes or having twice as many clothes to wash. This line also has self-developed prints inspired by city flowers. The Efficace & Actif women embodies the architecture of a city but also nourishes herself similar to growing a flower. This woman lives her best structured life, managing to balance work, health, and is flourishing in her social life. 🌁🌷🏃♀️
