FAS531 Fashion Design V
[1–6, 5 cr.]
Fashion Collection I is an advanced studio that sees students research and develop a collection that wholly centers on individual design philosophy. During this intensive semester, students negotiate a directional theme from which a wide range of creative research and design methods are employed in generating ideas that are highly creative and commercially viable. With a deeper understanding of fabric manipulation, pattern cutting and construction, students are able to visualize how garments will look when realized and thus produce work that demonstrates refinement and finesse. It is in this studio that the basis of the collection is set and all work including portfolio, presentation boards and marketing are subject to further critical analysis and change in Fashion Collection II. Students learn through intensive individual tutorials and jury presentations.
