Abstract

Global Nomadism is the art of living an international lifestyle. Global Nomads travel from one country to another without a permanent job or home. An important factor that becomes of Global Nomads is that they start to lose their state of origin from their country of origin, in other words their ties to their country begins to loosen; they start to no longer belong anywhere. Global Nomads work for independent companies such as IT, writing, teaching, or crafts (artisans).

Global Nomadism has become such a popular lifestyle because society is forced to come up with different ways of living in order to survive. As society has progressed and developed throughout the years living expenses are becoming higher and wages are staying the same. This factual truth leads mankind to develop a new lifestyle.

The purpose of my design was to give my customer shelter along her journey. I wanted to give my customer the freedom to travel as long as she pleased and the ability to reside at any place she chose to stop at. After long days and nights of constant research and consistent trials I was able to design a jacket that can transform into a tent that can provide shelter to three to four people at a time.

I used technical fabrics and innovative strategies to solve the solution to create shelter through fashion. The tent jacket is made with waterproof fabrics accessorized with a severe climate zipper that withstands temperatures as -150 degrees Fahrenheit.
