Student’s Garment to be Featured in Wrangler Clothing Line


The moment I found out my shirt was being
produced was, um, when Trista emailed me and of course, I have, I made my mom, like, read
the email to me, I’m like “what does that say? Did I really read that right?” you know,
that sort of thing. And it really was, it was exciting but also humbling to know as a student, your
design is getting produced. It was absolutely a possibility that if the
students did a great job and it was a feasible look or design that it could possible make
the line. There was actually thirteen or so designs that actually made that cut. Um, it
came down to three in the end and then Shannon’s actually made the Holiday, 2012 line. What helped me with the design was, because
I had the rural upbringing, because I’m very familiar with the brand, my brother wears
Wrangler Jeans, this style, this size, that’s it. And so, I know a little bit about it,
I’ve heard about the Wrangler brand before and that’s actually something that I wanted
to get into was the work wear area whether it be with Wrangler or Carhart, all those
different brands that really make up the country-western. She really came in with the thought process,
her concept board was very pulled-together. She knew exactly the different stores, the
look. She knew what she was going for. The shirt design is simple but I think that
it has the fun with the lines and the extra stitching and when I turned in my design,
I did receive the feedback and I changed my shirt according to the feedback but, um, it
was a class project and we only had two weeks to work on it so it was a very fast, fast-paced
project. Shannon will have a great resume piece to
start off with. She’ll have, um, just automatically she can say “my shirt was actually produced,
it was in their line” and so she’s got a great talking piece when she goes into interviews,
so, you know, this can only build her from here.
