Updating a technical commuter rain coat for Showers Pass, for a more
fashion-conscious market. Using specialized fabrics for heavy rain, and creating a stylish aesthetic, rather than a purely functional version.

Showers Pass, a Portland cycling apparel company, created a competition. The mission: Create a functional, but more fashionable commuter cycling jacket. This design took third place. The design was similar to a Showers Pass coat in functionality, but embraced a more modern and clean aesthetic.

Does art exist? Or, is it a collective agreement of skills practiced over millennia? Where is the line drawn between revolution and unnoticed?
