FAS561 Fashion Business

[2–2, 4 cr.]

During this final advanced Pattern Cutting course, students have the opportunity to test their techniques and skills in the production of key silhouettes for their final collection. This is the last time students have access to a pattern cutter and it is expected they will push the boundaries of this discipline in the pursuit of excellence. At this  point there are no longer demonstrations and exercises, but rather students are expected to work on their self-directed study program. The ability to produce industry accurate patterns that demonstrate finesse is essential to success as are the organizational skills required for producing an array of complex patterns for a collection. Students learn through individual tutorials.
