1st SEMESTER (SEPTEMBER – DECEMBER)

Introduction to Collection Theory

Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of the fashion industry through lectures informing on the industry’s current big players, and the differentiation between each womenswear sector (i.e. including but not limited to- pret-a-porter, haute couture, streetwear).

These skills will be exercised during an assignment, which asks students to create a 12 look womenswear collection.

Introduction to Figure Drawing

Introduction to Figure Drawing will arm students with the tools necessary to draw the female, male, and child figure from each angle. Students will study proportion and composition, through life drawing exercises, which will offer opportunities to learn about garment details, fabrics, and silhouettes- with an overarching goal to communicate their designs through fashion sketches.

Introduction to Pattern Design
