2012.This piece is inspired by the homeless people I met in Monroe Park, Richmond, Virginia. Smart, multifunctional clothing is essential to the nomadic lifestyle. Protection against the elements is necessary not only for individuals but also for their possessions. Similarly, the ability to dress in layers in crucial. A bulky coat is useful only for the winter months whereas a light jacket, a couple of sweaters, and a few t-shirts can serve you for all seasons. With these considerations in mind, I designed and prototyped a versatile accessory that retains its usefulness year-round. Unisex and one size fits all, the garment features a Gore-tex exterior and quick-drying nylon mesh lining. This simple tube of fabric containing two drawstring casings at either end is a scarf, waterproof hood, and water-resistant backpack. This garment fulfills a variety of functions while remaining democratic in its simple yet fashionable design. Gore-tex, nylon mesh, nylon cord, double-barrel clasps, and one heavy-duty clasp.
