Tyvek Fashion by Samantha Plasencia Wins Award

Samantha Plasencia is a fashion designer from Texas who is using Tyvek in her latest collection that was featured in a runway show at this year's Austin Fashion Week (AFW). Plasencia's work won the 2016 Bernina Fashion Fund award at AFW. Samantha designs urban / casual separates, including jackets, tops, shorts and pants that were shown at AFW. She has been on the Lifetime TV series "Project Runway" in its season 13 show. Samantha currently lives in Austin, Texas.

Samantha purchases the Tyvek for these designs from Material Concepts and uses Tyvek style 1443R, which is a soft Tyvek / Tyvek fabric material. Each piece portrays something from the 90s that Samantha remembers growing up.

She painted each piece of clothing shown below herself, except the last two that are unpainted. Many thanks to Samantha for providing these photos, used with permission.

Tyvek continues to grow in popularity as a material used by innovative, creative designers. Material Concepts provides Tyvek rolls to many fashion designers - just contact Material Concepts or via phone: 215-338-6515 or 1-800-372-3366 or buy Tyvek online.
