The collection created serves several purposes, and follows a merchandising plan conceived by Fashion Merchandising students at Kent State University. The merchandising plan chosen is titled: “Simple Heritage”, and heralds the use of sustainable cotton fabrics as well as U.S. manufacturing. The customer who served as inspiration for this collection is an avid traveler. The group worked to design and create looks that were not only transformable and functional, but also eco-friendly. This collection is intended for a moderately priced market, and is set for Fall 2019.
