FAS332 Fashion Design II
[1–6, 5 cr.]
The studio explores designing for jersey and denim garments as a key aspect in producing commercially viable ranges. In a saturated market this course challenges students to uncover original research resources to ensure their designs reflect an emerging design philosophy. This studio introduces students to branding and marketing in placing collections at an appropriate market level as well as the significance of trend researching at a global level. The responsibility of ethical sourcing and production will be explored through an understanding of how the denim market has responded to the various issues in using cotton and applying finishes. Drawing methods and portfolio presentation skills are further explored and refined during this studio. Students learn through lectures, studio exercises, workshops and tutorials.
