The Quilted Garment Challenge

Threads #191, June/July 2017

As part of our annual design challenge to the Association of Sewing and Design Professionals, Threads asked: What do you get when you sew two-or more-fabric layers together? We wanted to see how this group of talented designers would interpret an age-old sewing technique in modern, stylish garments. The association’s members provided us with many answers, revealing the depth and breadth of their creativity. Threads asked: What do you get when you sew two-or more-fabric layers together?

The challenge Threads laid out was to create an ensemble with at least one major quilted garment. Twenty-five ASDP members took on the challenge, impressing us with their design innovation and technical skill. It is always exciting to examine the garments up close and to see the designs modeled on the runway.
