Course Description

This design studio is an introductory exploration of fashion design and visual communication of original ideas for fashion. An expert in the field of fashion guides you in developing and interpreting your research and concepts to the creation of drawings and presentations at an introductory level. You’ll explore a variety of making skills to interpret original ideas for fashion from 2D to 3D using traditional and non-traditional techniques and materials such as paper draping, material handcraft manipulations, and basic hand or machine sewn mockups. A sewing machine is not required. The creative process, trends, and careers are further explored in field trips and visits by industry professionals.

Course Notes: For the online sections of this course, all field trips and guest speaker presentations occur as virtual events and experiences.
