Fashion Design (Ages 11-15) - NEWTON
Regular price $250.00
This 6-week *Advanced Level* course will provide students with a peek into the world of a professional Fashion Designer!
Starting ages 11 and up, Fashion Design is a course created by a Parsons School of Design Alumna, and is a perfect fit for students who:
- Have a lot of experience sewing basic clothing and/or took our Fashion Sewing course in the past
- Have a creative flair and a deep interest in the intricacies of fashion design
- Hope to someday attend a design school such as Parsons, RISD, MassArt, etc.
- Love drawing, collaging, sewing and want to challenge themselves creatively
- Are excited by a course that is half-theory, half-practice, and wholly fun!
This is a structured course authentic to a first-year fashion student experience, with a semester condensed into 6 weeks. The basic outline is as follows:
Week 1: Ideation, we will begin by discussing the importance of mood boards for the creative process and gathering inspiration and play the "Why Do We Like?" game.
Week 2: Ideation Cont'd, we will use class time to work on mood boards, swatch fabrics, learn fashion vocabulary, and discuss how professional mood boards are put together. There will be a lecture/powerpoint and discussion about current Fashion Week trends and designers.
Week 3: Translation, we will put final touches on mood boards, and begin sketching looks. There will be a demo of how to sketch a croquis, and how to properly put together a technical flat sketch.
Week 4: Creation, we will use class time to choose a favorite design, take measurements and start working on patterns based on technical sketches. There will be a pattern-making demo at the beginning of class.
Week 5: Creation Cont'd, we will use class time to finish patterns, cut fabric, and start sewing permitting.
Week 6: Creation Cont'd, we will use class time to finish sewing.
