ANNUAL 2017 POST!

IWANCIW/FUNCTIONAL FUNWARE A COLOR/DESIGN HOUSE!

INNOVATING THE QUALITIES IN OLD SCHOOL TECHNOLOGIES IN FASHION AND REBUILDING THEM FROM THE FOUNDATION UP. UPDATING TO NEW SCHOOL FASHION THAT MAKE SENSE FOR THE MODERN CONSUMER.

THE 60’S WERE A REVOLUTIONARY TIME IN THE WORLD. ESPECIALLY WITH ONSET OF THE KOREAN AND VIETNAM WAR.

OUR COUNTRY WAS LOOKING TO A MORE PEACEFUL TIME, PEOPLE PROTESTED AND TURNED TO MEANS OF EXPRESSING THEMSELVES IN PEACEFUL MEANS. THEY TURNED THEIR DESIRE FOR PEACE, FREEDOM AND A MORAL RIGHT INTO ART FORMS. DEVELOPING OUTLETS FOR LIBERTY IN SPORTS, FASHION, FILM, AND THE WAY THEY RELATED TO EACH OTHER.

GENRES LIKE TIE-DYE, AN ACID-HIPPIE FREE MOVEMENT OF COLOR, TOOK PRECEDENCE AS THE NEW WAY OF EXPRESSING COLOR AND FREE FLOWING GRAPHICS.

IN CLOTHING, QUALITY SWEATER KNITS WERE IN COLORFUL GRAPHIC JACQUARD PULLOVERS AND CARDIGANS THAT COMPLIMENTED THE NEW DEVELOPING DUNGAREE CRAZE.

AT THE OTHER END OF THE SPECTRUM WAS THE SPORTS ACTIVITY CRAZE THAT WOULD DEVELOP INTO A JUGERNAUGHT AT ALL LEVELS.

FOLK/NATURE ART BECAME A STRONG COMPONENT IN PATCHWORK AND OTHER HANDCRAFTED WORK.

AND RECYCLING WAS JUST IMPLEMENTED AS INDUSTRIAL APPLICATION, A FAD AND NOT IN THE MAINSTREAM OF CONSUMERISM.

THESE HAVE ALL REMAINED BUT THEY HAVE EVOLVED INTO MODERN APPLICATIONS THAT IWANCIW FUNCTIONAL FUNWARE HAS EMBRACED AND BROUGHT INTO THE 21ST CENTURY.

SO, WE HAVE TAKEN WHAT WAS VIRTUALLY A CATASTROPHIC PERIOD OF CONFLICT AND DIVISION AND ADDRESSED IT.  

LOOKING TO FABRICATE, EVEN SUBSTITUTE, MOVEMENTS THAT WOULD SUPPLANT THE FEAR, MISTRUST AND COMMON DECENCY LACKING IN A DIFFICULT PERIOD OF OUR COUNTRY.

IWANCIW FUNCTIONAL FUNWARE TODAY!

  • SKY- DYE – A SOFTER APPROACH TO DISPERSING COLOR, THAT WOULD DEPICT THE GREAT OUTDOORS. A MORE SOBER, INCLUSIVE MOVEMENT TOWARD TRUTH AND FREEDOM.
  • SWEAT(ER) SHIRTS IN A FLAT KNIT CLASSIC JERSEY STITCH THAT IS NATURAL 100% COTTON MADE IN USA.
  • FUNCTIONAL FUNWARE THAT EXEMPLIFIES TODAY’S LEISURE JEAN -CENTRIC SOCIETY.
  • GEO-PATTERNING – CREATING GEOMETRIC DESIGNS IN “NU-CYCLE” FABRIC BLOCKS WITH A SENSE OF MOVEMENT.
  • UPCYCLING FLANNEL SHIRTS IN EITHER “SKY-DYE” OVERDYES, OR “NU-CYCLE” GEO-PATTERNING.

 

ALL THESE COMPONENTS WORKING TOGETHER, HELP DEFINE THE ESSENCE OF THE INNOVATIONS IN

IWANCIW FUNCTIONAL FUNWARE IN 2017, AND MOVING FORWARD.
