2020 AATCC Concept 2 Consumer® Student Merchandising Competition

AATCC is happy to announce the winners of the 2020 AATCC C2C® Student Merchandising Competition!

AATCC received 15 entries, with 37 students participating from 8 colleges and universities. This year’s theme was “Everlasting Style.” Students were challenged to develop a business model, determine a marketing strategy, and create merchandising tools and products for an integrated apparel line for office/work attire that is timeless in terms of sustainability, quality, and style. 

Students were once again asked to access educational resources, so they could highlight at least one AATCC test method and why it was important to their product line. 

See the full competition guidelines for more details.
