Functional Athleisure

The athleisure trend has blurred the boundaries between functional wear and leisurewear. Functional wear is no longer a niche market, but in the rapidly growing apparel market it is now seen as a sector in its own right.

When purchasing an item of functional wear or athleisure wear, consumers consider garment function, performance, comfort, value for money and brand reputation in their buying decisions. Recently, protective function in garments is a new trend.  Brands should ensure the functional claim(s) of the product in the marketplace must meet the performance requirements for which they are designed and therefore fulfilling client expectations.
