‘The Cozy’ was a project joint commissioned by DKNY, and Lineapiu, a luxury yarn retail company.
Client: DKNY x LINEAPIU
Date: November 30, 2006
The aim was to design and create a one-of-a-kind cozy. The garment was made on a 24-bed punch-card knitting machine and hand stitched together. The final piece was sold at the DKNY New York flagship store. (2006)
According to Donna Karan, creator of DKNY, "This project gives students a chance to balance the creative with the commercial. They also get the chance to work with the silhouette in new and exciting ways, which is the most educational thing of all."
