Learn what it takes to become a fashion designer! You'll discover the basic elements of fashion sketching, illustration, construction, collection development, beadwork, and fabric selection. We'll examine work by famous designers, from Coco Chanel to Marc Jacobs, and dive into the exciting world of fashion shows by learning the steps a designer goes through before, during, and after Fashion Week. Students will leave the program with a sketchbook full of designs and inspiration, their own set of design tools, and a final 2D or 3D project.
