Full Course Name: Introductory Fashion Design: From Sketching to Moodboards
This course combines the fundamentals of the fashion design process with honing your ability to create "from the wellspring" of the internal you. Learn to create garments based on your personal aesthetic rather than on the traditional process of creating fashion from commercial trends as evidenced in the marketplace. Whether you are an experienced fashion designer or an aspiring one, embark on a journey to develop personal, creative, and highly authentic garments.
We will begin with fashion illustration and research, including ethnographics, for inspiration leading to design formations. Use your personal "DNA," heritage, and life experiences to complete a well-balanced capsule collection illustrated on a mood board collage. Program includes sketching, exploration, use of 2-D and/or 3-D media, and line development tips on manufacturing.
Please bring to first class: Canson marker paper 14" x 17”, sketchbook with ring-binder 9” x 12”, a set (or at least 4 different colours and black) of Prismacolor double-ended chisel markers, 2B pencil, eraser, sharpener, 5-10 favorite fashion tear sheet images, 5-10 favorite non-fashion related tear sheet images, scissors for paper, and a glue stick.
