The design challenge here must have been to create a collection using non-colors, the most basic of items or silhouettes, yet still make each piece stand out. That would be tough for any fashion designer, but this group succeeded beautifully. The solution by the Pratt fashion graduates was to create unique cuts and edges. Using monotone colors can be made interesting by diversifying the texture and weight of the fabrics. Mixing sheer with thick opaque, shine versus matte can create a canvas for artistic pieces on the body. In this case the single color emphasizes all the design decisions of each individual piece.
Look out for these collections a few years from now, the future of fashion has been seen. Congratulations to all of the Pratt Fashion designers, class of 2014!
