The textile industry has always been a large part of what makes North Carolina rich in history. From the furniture market in Greensboro to North Carolina State University’s esteemed College of Design and Textiles, Spoonflower is proud to support the local makers who are helping shape the fashion industry. This year, Spoonflower and the talented local design community celebrated the 16th year of Art2Wear, a completely student run fashion show at North Carolina State University.
“Art2Wear provides the teaching and learning environments for handcrafted experiences blended with old and new technology, unfolding the magical epiphanies revealed through making.”
Chandra Cox – Head, Department of Art + Design
With this year’s Art2Wear theme, “The Art of Dejavu”, students were challenged to imagine, create and inspire by expression their point of view through wearable art. From digitally printed watercolor designs capturing the essence of summer to garments hand-knit to evoke memories of home cooking, we were yet again inspired by the talent that surrounds our community.
Spoonflower is honored to be a part of the Art2Wear community, and we continue to be inspired by the student designers featured this year, in years past, and for many years to come!
