CORDURA® Performance fabrics inspire students to conceptualize workwear that meets at the intersection of fashion and function.

ESMOD/ISEM Paris  |  France news

INVISTA’s CORDURA® brand fabric, known for durability, comfort and performance, has joined forces with students at ESMOD Paris to bring a new perspective to workwear: How to integrate the rules of fashion into protective work clothing.
 
Using inspiration from a range of CORDURA® fabrics, ESMOD students will develop a complete style portfolio consisting of several casual designs for both men and women. Designers will begin with traditional work clothing concepts and integrate modern world fashion styling concepts. The goal is to create versatile pieces showcasing style crossover between fashion, sport and work clothing. Selected student designs will be produced using appropriate CORDURA® brand fabrics.

Final designs will be presented on April 6, 2016 at ESMOD Paris. Representatives from the CORDURA® brand team will have the opportunity to select garments to feature in special CORDURA® brand young designer displays at international trade exhibitions including Expoprotection in France (November 2016) and Outdoor Retailer in the United States (August 2016).
