Needs to be two inches longer.


JANAKPURI, DELHI One of the issues with designing in India is finding a fit model that works for fits internationally. Pradeep is a perfect size small fit for India, but size small translates differently in different markets. We need to create that perfect #worldcitizen fit. Today was spent trying to find that right balance of a little give here and there for different body types.

What I learned: 

  1. Because fit is not universal, the solution to creating a versatile fit is to use fabrics with a little stretch to them.
  2. Stretch doesn’t always mean adding in synthetics.  To maintain the integrity of the fabric, the weave can be loosened to allow for flexibility.
