Contemporary Fashion One-Week Intensive

During this week-long intensive, students will explore contemporary approaches to designing and developing experimental garments. Activities will guide them through the process of developing original ideas, finding inspiration in the world around them, and responding to the work of other artists and designers. Students will also explore sculptural draping by deconstructing and reconstructing thrift store garments to create designs on the dress form. The School's Fashion Resource Center will provide inspiration and supplement the studio experience. This course will function as a working lab where experimentation and risk-taking are encouraged to broaden technical and conceptual skills.

Registration for this course is closed.
