Who you’re designing for
We’re asking you to create an FR workwear garment that industrial professionals
want to wear.
We’re talking about modern wearers who want their protective clothing to be an relevant expression of themselves — not a biproduct of safety standards and massed produced convenience. The industrial workers you’re designing for want workwear that feels like the clothes they wear outside of work – a perfect blend of fit, comfort, and protection.
Using the FR stretch fabric provided to you, we’re calling designers to skilfully weave these elements together to create a fashionable garment that will change it all for modern workwear professionals everywhere.
