Live Plucking is a dreadful down-harvesting process by plucking geese’s feathers alive. To maximize the down production, geese are repeatedly plucked alive during their lifetime. Due to its cruelty, live plucking is being executed in secret. PARACOSM STUDIO, a new fashion brand and a market challenger, wants to challenge this brutal process in fashion industry. We want to make people wear winter jacket without harming any geese. In a giant trend of vegan fashion, PARACOSM STUDIO's product is going to be the very first product to attempt to replace goose-down padding and to end live plucking.
The idea is that we can end live-plucking if we replace goose down with a better alternative, air. It's because air is the most essential and effective material to insulate. Thus, we made a winter jacket filled only with air, AIR PADDING. To prove if it's warm enough, we try to test it and write a research paper. To show and sell it to as many people as possible, we contact MUSINSA, the most popular and MZ's favorite fashion shopping app.
About the design, AIR PADDING is filled only with air. It’s divided into 10 separate parts to fit the human body’s curve and to make its movement free. Each part is designed to control the amount of air as much as you want. AIR PADDING is made of polyurethane, an airtight material. About the warmth test, AIR PADDING has been tested for 6 months in SEOUL NATIONAL UNIVERSITY to prove its insulation capability. The difference between a goose down’s insulation and AIR PADDING’s is just 0.06clo, meaning a warmth of a sheet of sleeveless shirt. A research paper would be published this March. With MUSINSA, AIR PADDING opened a raffle event, gathering more than twenty thousand users. Video commercial was made and broadcasted on DOOH by MUSINSA in Gangnam, the most trendy and the most crowded street in Seoul. It's gone viral, so influencers and magazines reviewed as well.
