My unique pleated pants narrative.

In 1920, Great Britain students at Oxford University made a fashion statement by wearing extra-wide legged pants which later known as "Oxford Bags". 

The trend later spread across the US Ivy League schools.

I first notice pleated pants from Versace in the 80s. Actor Richard Gere was wearing it in movies and Miami vice actors were also wearing pleated pants in TV series. I think it all started by Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace who made a transformation of the pleated pants and made it as fashion trends in the 80s. 

In 2020, Pleated Pants are making a comeback. I started my career fashion business in the early 90s, so I had difficulty understanding and absorbing the 80s trend. So, to make a 2020 fashion statement, I've made an Expansion version of Pleated Pants. 


I changed the concept of the Pleated Pants to sporty wear. I transformed the belt loop by replacing it with an adjustable drawstring and elastic waistband to make it easy to wear. I use a very smooth mid-weight stretch poly-cotton fabric which makes it lighter and comfortable. Of course, I kept the loose fit style as history continues. It is a bit hard compared to typical pleated pants, but this is my unique pleated pants narrative.
