This course balances theoretical and studio approaches in the design and two-dimensional representation of fashion. Academic literature and lectures accompany practical design exercises such as trend forecasting and collection development throughout the three-week semester. Students will explore various media and techniques to practice new skills, while creating a professional-grade portfolio based on their individual design aesthetic. Students will be introduced to contemporary fashion design techniques both mechanical and digital.
The instructor will provide a list of supplies, which will cost approximately $50. This expense is in addition to the cost of the program. Depending on the nature of individual projects, students should anticipate incurring additional expenses for art supplies, printing, and related materials. Students should bring a camera, or a high quality cell phone camera, with the ability to download photos to a computer as well as at least a 16 MB USB flash drive.
This course is open to all registrants, including undergraduates and precollege students.
