Several stylish new products are in stores this fall as a result of collaborations between Pratt and two corporate partners.

For the third year in a row, Pratt has partnered with Barnes & Noble to design journals, notebooks, sketchbooks, and pencil cases for Barnes & Noble’s Back to Campus collection. The items are available exclusively in the gift departments of Barnes & Noble stores nationwide, online, and at select Barnes & Noble College bookstores.

The students who designed B&N products were: Lauren Manning (M.S. Comm-D ’11); Daniel Wiggins (M.F.A. Comm-D ’11); Steven Johnson (M.S. Comm-D ’11); and Shiva Alipour (M.S. Comm-D ’11). The faculty advisor to the project was Tom Dolle, adjunct professor in the Department of Communications Design.

In addition, the Department of Fashion Design and Urban Outfitters recently collaborated on a design competition that challenged nine Pratt Fashion Design students to create a dress completely made out of jersey in six weeks. The three winning dress designs by Fashion Design students Kindall Almond (Fashion Design '13), Simone Kurland (Fashion Design '13), and Sam O'Brien (Fashion Design '13)—which were selected by Urban Outfitters dress buyer Robbin Choi and Urban Outfitters executive design director Gayle Smith—are available in Urban Outfitters stores this fall as part of the Designed By: Pratt Institute collection.
