Instinct was the University of Minnesota’s Apparel Design fashion show for 2017. The apparel students had been working on their designs since August. After months of hundreds of sketches, endless brainstorming, the selection of fabrics and models, final line decisions were made. All of the sleepless nights (on-top of all of their other school work, activities, and social life), it was finally time for the designers to show off their expertise and personal aesthetics.
Sarah’s love for running inspired her for this clothing line. She has been running cross country for her whole life, and is on the University’s cross country team. This past summer she interned with Target Corporate as a design intern. Although she was not able to work in the athletic department, it is still her dream to work and design for Nike someday. Her clothing line embodied a futuristic running warrior. Reflective elements were used throughout each garment, and unique colors of rustic orange, teal, and maroon set the line apart from current trending items out there now.
The black make up across our faces really enhances the looks, and embodies the inner running warrior who will not back down.
