Nike Flyknit Re-Designed Jersey

With my basketball jersey design, my aim was to add to the aesthetics whilst maintaining it's practicality. Re- designed for a female, I chose to crop the jersey and add a net feature on the bottom half to represent a basketball hoop. This also contributed to the top being more breathable. Whilst researching traditional basketball games, I came across cheerleaders and thought it be interesting to incorporate their appearance into the jersey. From there it lead to me sewing weave onto the bottom hem and tieing the hair into a formation that recreated the pattern of a net. It turned out really effective.

Fellow BNTL SISTER Lisa did a little review on the workshop and a short interview with me here.

Big thanks to Sharmadean Reid, Jarret Reynolds, Tarik Fontenelle, Tremaine Emory, Patternity, Astrid Andersen, Cassette Playa, & Susie Bubble for putting on an inspiring and thought provoking workshop. I'd do it all over again.

Nike Flyknit Workshop

This week I've been taking part in Nike's Flyknit Workshop in London. Nike have put on a series of workshops inspired by their innovative Flyknit technology, and this week is based around Formitting. Fashion designer Astrid Andersen came into 1948 to present her basketball collection to us, which wasn't necessarily practical. However, her attitude towards sportswear mixed with high fashion helped influence more elaborate and exciting designs...
We were each given a jersey, asked to play basketball in them, noting down all improvements that could be made. A main factor for me was breathability as i got quite hot whilst playing! Today we started re-designing our jersey, above is my (unfinished) piece so far.

Tomorrow is the last day of the workshop where we'll complete our designs and photograph them with the lovely Susie Bubble.
