Fashion Design Summer Mini Camp( 11yrs-16yrs)- WELLESLEY
Regular price $450.00
Join us for a mini week of Fashion Design Camp.
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!
Day 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.
Ideation Cont'd, we will use camp 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.
Day 2: Translation, we will put final touches on mood boards, and begin sketching looks. There will be a demo of how to sketch a croqui from scratch, and how to properly put together a technical flat sketch.
Creation, we will use camp 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.
Day 3: Creation Cont'd, we will use camp time to finish patterns, cut fabric, and start sewing.
Day 4: Creation Cont'd, we will use class time to finish sewing.
Day 5. Complete sewing and finish garment and accessories.
