Last night '47 and the Pratt Insitute took over National Sawdust in Brooklyn, showcasing the work of five student designers. The '47 Redesign program, inspired by the growing intersection between sport and lifestyle, taps up-and-coming creatives to reinterpret '47's heritage sportswear offerings in a new way.
For the inaugural '47 Redesign show, the brand partnered with five students from Pratt Institute's "Deconstruct/Reconstruct" course: Brittany Lovegrove, Fiona Cole, Elle Quesada, Michaela Folcik, and June Young Woo. Each student was challenged to create one-of-a-kind pieces using deadstock '47 apparel and accessories.
After the show, judges decided on a winner. The panel consisted of Woolmark menswear prize winners Laurence Chandler and Joshua Cooper of Rochambeau, Aluna Francis of AlunaGeorge, and several members of Pratt faculty. In the end, June Young Woo took home the grand prize.
