2012. Abasi and Rosborough make 15 prototypes with a variety of panels and anatomical lines to wear and test their idea. 

The first Abasi Rosborough Concept (ARC) Jacket is finalized. It allows the wearer to move and breathe, and preserves the archetype, lineage, and cultural meaning of the original design.
