This 6-week *Beginner Level* course will provide students with a peek into the world of a professional Fashion Designer! 

For children ages 7-12, Junior Fashion Design is a course created by a Parsons School of Design Alumna, and is a perfect fit for students who:

  • Has little to no machine sewing experience (we will teach you!)
  • Has a creative flair and deep interest in fashion design specifically
  • Interested in learning a new skill
  • Wants to learn how to pull inspiration, illustrate fashion croquis, and sew using a pattern

    Week-by-week outline:

    Week 1: Introduce one another, watch two fashion shows with different styles, discuss what inspiration is and where it can be sourced, learn about what a mood board is and begin working on our own mood boards.

    Week 2: Finish mood boards, making color swatch cards, naming collections, making a customer profile, and learning how to pull inspiration from mood boards and colors.

    Week 3: Learning the basics of designing with a fashion croquis as a group, making quick sketches inspired by mood boards, and working on colored and more finalized versions of the designs. 

    Week 4: Designing more simplified versions of the garments that can be sewn, sewing machine demonstration, measuring, starting pattern drafting, and discussing fabric options.
