UNIQLO Partners with FIT on an Upcycling Collection for RE.UNIQLO Studio
More than 225 people gathered on Tuesday, December 12, at the UNIQLO Fifth Avenue Global Flagship Store to celebrate the launch of RE.LIVE, an exclusive upcycling collection developed by FIT students in partnership with UNIQLO to reimagine new, creative solutions for unsellable product. This marks UNIQLO’s first collaboration with a U.S.-based college, and it is the latest initiative from its RE.UNIQLO program, which is committed to extending the life of clothes through repairing, reusing, remaking, and recycling.
Under the guidance of FIT’s DTech Lab, three Fashion Design BFA students and two Advertising and Digital Design BFA students from the Class of 2024 collaborated on the RE.LIVE project, from inception through to the campaign rollout. The collection is now available at the RE.UNIQLO Studio inside its Fifth Avenue store.
