Course Description

Learn how fashion designers take inspiration from anything and everything in the world around them. You'll get a glimpse of the world of menswear while developing a sportswear mini-collection. Mix-and-match garments, fabrics, and colors to provide a variety of outfits using a limited number of pieces. You will develop your own croquis, learn how to translate your ideas and inspirations to paper and mood boards, and how to effectively communicate your designs through illustrations and presentation. Great for students working on fashion portfolio projects!
