FAS382 Contour Design
[2–2, 3 cr.]
This studio introduces the specialist area of swimwear and related garments and builds on Pattern Cutting II and construction II where students were introduced to stretch jersey. Technical skills and considerations for working with high stretch fabrics that support the body are explored, whilst historical context forms part of the research students undertake, along with a review of the current market in developing concept, designs and range. This is especially of interest for designers who wish to expand their knowledge of this growing market within the region. Students learn through demonstrations, practical exercises and tutorials in the development of directional garments.
