This course starts with an overview of sketching and drawing techniques for fashion. Participants are also introduced to pattern cutting basics, and the principles of art and dress in history, necessary for design research and to cultivate a creative vision. Participants discover the fundamental ‘base’ to designing for fashion, understanding skills that designers use today.
In this course, participants are encouraged to develop skills in order to design fashion collections, based on an informed analysis of body proportion, the influences of art and culture on design, as well as exploring fabrics, garment construction, and the marketing of ideas in collection design.
Fashion courses are supported by lectures, workshops, and subject specific presentations by a faculty of professionals in the field. If participants have little or no previous experience but would like to become familiar with some of the key disciplines in the industry, or a specific area, there are a variety of levels and course durations to suit all preferences. Continuing education courses are also the perfect ‘taster’ or introduction to the fashion industry, which may help in decision making for future in-depth study or career path development.
