At this year’s Cornell Fashion Collective, keep an eye out for two models on the runway wearing what could become a hot new trend in athletic wear — thermochromic outfits that change color in response to changes in body temperature. A team of three students in fiber science — Ariana Levitt ’15, Sarah Meyers ’16, and Eric Beaudette ’16 — and Alicia Potuck grad, chemistry, developed the garments.
