COURSE THEMES

Week 1

The start of the course introduces fashion drawing and design techniques followed by an analysis of the founding principles of developing a fashion collection including: silhouette, colour charts, fabrics and accessories, right through to the design and creation of outfits. Participants are then introduced to the silhouette, colour palettes, the appropriate use of fabrics, and the principle financial considerations of designing for fashion.

Week 2

Starting from creative research to foster personal inspiration, participants are guided to develop basic silhouettes and coordinate outfits with fabric and colour selection. The focus on trend research looks into its origins together with market relevance, and a brief analysis on how trends influence a contemporary collection.

Week 3

Based on inspiration linked to a selected theme, participants put together a basic fashion design collection supported by appropriate technical information, including colour charts, inspirational materials or mood board. Participants put into practice the acquired knowledge from the previous weeks and prepare a presentation of their work as a basic collection portfolio, to receive a final holistic critique.
