Munoz was also named as a runner up in the 2015 Fashion Snoops International Print and Pattern Competition.
His collection was inspired by aviation, specifically the fluidity of fighter jets; the silhouettes of his designs mimic the curves and aerodynamic shapes of F-16 and B-2 fighter jets. Munoz’s collection features his own textiles as well as material he made by piecing together over 300 felt stripes.
