Student designed her thesis to help Syrian refugees

Angela Luna, 22, a Parsons Fashion Design senior designed her senior thesis collection to address the problems facing Syrian refugees as they make their journey across borders to safety.
Her thesis collection is comprised of seven transformative outerwear looks that are both unisex and one size fits all. The looks include two jackets that transform to full size tents (one that fits a couple and another that fits a family), a jacket that turns into a sleeping bag, a jacket that turns into a backpack, an inflatable life vest garment, an adjustable child carrier vest, and a reversible reflective/camouflage jacket. At the same time, she thought of functionalities that could easily be repurposed for outdoors or camping activities.
