Students are introduced to the subject of fashion and all the various methods and techniques involved in the fashion design process. The course encourages students to begin to articulate a personal narrative and visual language as a designer.
Students are guided through projects and exercises that are designed to build a fashion design vocabulary, understanding and artistic expression. Students create visually stimulating research concepts. Experiment with color, texture, and material. Explore designing through college as a method to generate fashion designs. Gain the opportunity to develop creative fashion outcomes and skills that they can then apply to their future career and learning portfolio.
