​​Second Place - OnesieTree by Annie Schtevie, a fashion merchandising major at the University of Delaware.  From this competition she has developed a depth of interest in trend forecasting, specifically as it relates to textile and apparel production.  "I am very interested in supply chain management and development," she says.  "And I love to learn how companies design, produce, and dye products for coming seasons, when the fashion cycle is often unpredictable and is evolutionarily changing."  She noted that "the things I have learned while participating in this competition will be helpful to me in my future career because they allowed me to contextualize the long-term trends of sustainable textiles and active consumer-input in clothing brands.  I also researched how certain fabrics can be repurposed based on the fibers they contain.  Overall, this competition was very rewarding!"

 

Second Place - Unveil by Emily Kopcik, an apparel design major at the University of Delaware.  Kopcik says, "The Metamorphosis design competition challenged me to learn design techniques that previously, I had not considered, such as detachable garments and changing fabrics.  At first, it was difficult to come up with a design that would be functional for the consumer as well as aesthetically pleasing.  Pushing the limits and creating innovative, sustainable designs that have more than one function is a concept that I think will continue to become more popular in the fashion industry.  This contest led me to create further designs with a metamorphosis aspect and it will definitely help me in future endavors."
