Summer 2015 Precollege Programs in the Arts:
Project Fashion Designer

stock  fashion illustration Grades 9–12

Typical Day

Learn to turn creative fashion ideas into unique catwalk creations! Using garment industry standards, begin with sketches and illustrations and bring your vision to life after learning about current fashion trends, fabrications, forecasting, color theory, and human body characteristics that determine the way clothing fits and flows. Gain hands-on basic sewing techniques as you learn how to make different seams, seam finishes, and hems, and lay out and cut a pattern. Projects may include skirts, tops, ponchos, redesign of vintage items, and/or other basic sewing projects. Whatever you decide to create, you will have the stage to show off your work at the culminating fashion show! Create a small illustrative collection and learn rendering techniques and presentation formats. Projects in the course will help you create your portfolio. Receive a DVD of the fashion show!

  • Students must bring a sewing machine. (Don’t forget your instruction booklet!)
  • All other supplies are included in the program fee.

To broaden exposure to the arts, Project Fashion Designer can be combined with Video Game Creators and Animators, Code Breakers and App Designers, the Songwriting Workshop, Shakespeare Workshop, Journalism Institute, Summer Percussion Seminar, and/or Vocal Intensive to make for a well-rounded summer experience.
