A highly debated and increasingly covered topic today is sustainability. Many clothing companies are transforming their approach in business and improvising their supply chains to reduce the overall environmental impact and improving social conditions in factories. There are many methods to make sustainable garments, out of which one of them is to make convertible garments. They have the potential to change design and function which allows consumers to keep and use garments in a variety of ways. Transformable or convertible apparel offers functional and/or alternative aesthetic styles through various methods, which is considered a sustainable option in the fashion industry to reduce excess clothing consumption. In this paper, a convertible women’s clothing collection is developed. It also analyses consumer preferences and intention to buy the clothing through a survey collected from a convenient sample of 50 respondents. The results of this study will benefit apparel designers, merchandisers, and retailers in developing and promoting convertible dresses.
