PATHWAY* · KNITWEAR DESIGN

Additional study for core course · 1 week

The fascinating, complex, and multifaceted knitwear sector has always been an important component for all major international fashion brands. Creating knitwear not only means designing the shape and choosing the colour, it’s also about creating the very material that makes the garment or product. Knitted clothing is among the most versatile, both in terms of creativity and adaptability, and gives way to express 100% design creativity. The goal on this course is to provide participants with a clear understanding of the multiple creative and stylistic possibilities that knitting offers.

The course looks as various technical and creative aspects of knitwear, taking into consideration different types of products such as pullovers, cardigans, gilet and twin-sets etc., analysing the base study of fibres and yarns, and different knitting and stitching techniques such as Jacquard, inlay work, stich and print which permit the creation of key base materials for individual knitted creations. Starting from research that represents personal inspiration participants are guided in how to plan and develop their own design ideas, working on colour pallet definition and material selection, in order to coordinate garment designs and work on creating a look that is in line with contemporary fashion trends.

*Pathways are 1 week study courses that focus on a particular theme or skill within a main study area. These courses are available as an addition to core courses.

CORE COURSE

This short course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of fashion design, how to formulate ideas and translate them into a visual representation. Participants will be introduced to key notions in the fashion design process and to basic drawing and illustration techniques. The course also explores the role of the fashion designer via a vocational learning approach.

 

 

COURSE THEMES · CORE COURSE

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 fashion 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 design and develop ideas into 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 and help form a contemporary collection. Participants put into practice the acquired knowledge and prepare a basic collection of work.
