AATCC announces 2021 C2C Student Design Competition
Posted August 20, 2020
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – Students are invited to showcase their design talents to win cash and recognition by participating in AATCC’s Concept 2 Consumer® Student Design Competition.
This year’s theme, Fashion Evolution, showcases AATCC’s centennial – the association’s 100th Birthday. The theme for AATCC’s centennial celebrations is “Celebrating a Century – Focused on the Future!”
Fashion Evolution will mirror that theme. From the 1920s, when AATCC was founded, to the present day, students will be asked to choose a decade from the last 100 years and reinvent the fashions for the 2020 decade, focusing on one or more of the following:
fit/sizing for various body types
new textile materials/technology
Students will be asked to:
Research one chosen decade and related apparel products from that time period.
Design an apparel line (3-5 designs) that is influenced by a chosen past decade’s style and reinvented for the 2020 decade. Choose one or more focus areas to incorporate into designs.
Incorporate one or more surface designs (print pattern, woven design, knit design, etc.) within the apparel line.
Entries are due April 4, 2021. Competition guidelines are available on the AATCC website.
Students can enter the contest individually or work in teams.
(Team entries will divide the prize among all members.)
