Both the front and back panels may be reversibly wearable such that a user may select separate exterior designs for the front panel and back panel. The front and back panels are removably attachable along their seams to each other and to other similarly configured panels having similar or different styles, colors, cuts and/or patterns.

Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • The present invention relates generally to the field of customizable garments. More specifically, the present invention relates to a fashion concept involving articles of clothing that allow a wearer to combine different colors, cuts and styles in a single garment.
  • 2. Background of the Prior Art
  • Clothing and other such wearable garments are a necessity. Yet, clothing is also an expression of the individual wearer. The expression of the individual wearer has traditionally been limited to the selection of predetermined clothing designs and, for example, creating an outfit from a collection of one article of clothing from a first designer and a second article of clothing from a second designer. A wardrobe of clothing is limited to choosing among a predetermined number of predesigned articles of clothing that can be worn only in accordance with their single purpose design.
  • Articles of clothing exist that are transformative, such as jackets having removable sleeves, and pants having removable leggings. These garments allow a wearer to remove sleeves and leggings in accordance with temperate conditions. However, these transformable articles of clothing are a functional result of the wearer's environment, and not an expression of their individuality, style and personality.
  • Similarly, reversible clothing provides multiple uses for a single garment. Reversible garments have a first design on a first side, and a second design on a second side. Again, this limits the expression of the individual, where the cut and style of the outfit are identical with the exception of the pattern or color design of the reversible sides. For example, a reversible turtleneck would have an identical white turtleneck on one side and black turtle neck on the other side, while the style and cut of the garment remain unchanged.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 2,722,686, issued to Hoskings, describes a garment having detachable front and back portions. A wearer is able to remove a front portion from a back portion. The intent of U.S. Pat. No. 2,722,686, however, was to allow a person to salvage at least one portion of a soiled garment while allowing the soiled portion to be replaced by a different portion.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 5,894,600, issued to Chenefront, describes a transformable and/or metamorphosable garment. This garment provides much freedom to a wearer to design a garment having a number of intermixed patterns and arrangements. A problem with the garment described in U.S. Pat. No. 5,894,686 is that it is too complex for a wearer to construct a garment Garments need to be relatively simple to construct and configure, since a wearer may need to quickly assemble an outfit from a number of different garments.
  • It would therefore be advantageous to create a configurable garment that allows a wearer to add different cuts, styles and designs in a simple and easy to use manner, that does not involve an intricate system of modules, but allows more freedom than simply providing exclusively removable parts or exclusively reversible parts.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention provides a fashion design concept for allowing a wearer of the present invention to select a front panel for an article of clothing and a corresponding back panel that can be fastened to the front panel to provide a wearable garment that expresses the individual preferences of the wearer. The front panel and back panel may be reversibly wearable wherein a wearer may select which patterns to wear on an exterior of the garment by selectively fastening a predetermined side of the front panel to a predetermined side of the back panel.
  • One embodiment of the present invention provides for the creation of a shirt or blouse. A front panel of a blouse and back panel of a blouse are attachable by a cooperating fastener system on the side seams of the front panel and back panel. Additional fastener systems may be used on the shoulder seams for attaching straps and/or sleeves to the shirt or blouse.
  • A user may select from a series of interchangeable front and back panels of different cuts and designs that are attachable to each other.
  • The present invention also provides a skirt having a pair of front panels each have opposing vertical edges defining seams having a fastener system extending thereon. The pair of front panels may combine to form a single front section of a skirt and may be configured to mate with a back panel having corresponding fastener systems on opposing seams, to form a skirt.
  • The present invention also provides a pair of pants having a front panel and correspondingly mating back panel each having fastener systems on opposing vertical seams. Both the front and back panel may be reversibly wearable in combination with each other.
  • The present invention also provides a dress having a blouse portion and a dress portion. A front panel has a front of the blouse portion and dress portion and a back panel has a back of the blouse portion and dress portion. The front and back panels have a corresponding fastener system extending along the side seam and shoulder seam to attach the front panel to the back panel. The front panel and back panel each being reversibly wearable and able to mate with differently cut front panels or back panels having corresponding mating fastener systems.
