Threads Reversible Garment Challenge: The Inside (and Outside) Story
A slide show features finalist and winning garments designed by members of the Professional Association of Custom Clothiers
As ever, the Threads editors were floored by the innovative designs and high-quality construction of the entries, and had a difficult (but enjoyable) time narrowing the field down to 15 finalists. On June 21, 2003, the winners of the competition were announced by assistant editor Judy Neukam in Las Vegas, as the finale to PACC's annual conference and fashion show. To see the work of the 15 finalists and get both sides of the story yourself, click through our Slide show: 15 reversible garments.
