During this 8 week fashion design course, students invent a capsule collection of five outfits. Students will learn how to:
- apply the elements and principles of design to their work
- research and design for a specific target market
- visualize ideas through boards, sketching and draping
- analyze the construction of garments
- pattern draft through dart manipulation exercises
- understand fabrics, notions and trims
- make spec sheets for production (buyers and sewers)
- make line ready to present to a buyer.
Five projects will be worked on throughout the course, which students will present to their peers on the last day. Presentation format and style is determined by each student. These projects include:
- a target market profile
- a mood board
- a storyboard
- a line sheet
- a spec sheet.
The instructors will work with each student based on personal skill level and preferred pace.
