We have always understood that the creation of clothing is a complex activity. Creating garments that fit well on a variety of body sizes and shapes using materials with vastly different properties ranging from filmy silk chiffon to stout leather; garments that keep us comfortable, move with us, and look great –this takes a depth of understanding that is unrivaled for any other product design. The engineer who builds a bridge on solid ground has a simple task compared to ours! With our desire to introduce a new generation of young people to the real excitement of fashion design Style Engineers was born from this understanding, coupled. A grant from the National Science Foundation helped make this a reality, with an initial three years of development, testing, and having fun with the great youngsters who participated in our pilot programs.
