This gives activewear companies an opportunity to create multi-use pieces for the average working man and woman. In addition to activewear companies, big name designers like Matthew Williams, a British fashion designer, teamed up with Nike to create a line that debuted in a Paris pop-up shop in early 2019.

We even see this happening with popular celebrities like Kanye West, who created a clothing line with the activewear company, Adidas. This line includes pieces like sweatpants and sweatshirts. Who would’ve thought you would see such casual looks on the runway during fashion week? Aside from high fashion, athleisure is seen throughout college campuses because of its extreme comfort.
