This advanced course is for students who have taken the Early College Program Fashion Construction class or have substantial experience with sewing and/or constructing garments. Students focus on increasing their skills by creating more advanced designs and garments and producing self-driven projects with faculty guidance and peer engagement. Continued experimentation with paper, muslin, second-hand clothing, and fabric off the bolt is combined with visits to SAIC's Fashion Resource Center and the Art Institute of Chicago to deepen knowledge of clothing as a language, how garments communicate, and what they signify. The course culminates in a runway show with image documentation of the creative process.
