What you'll learn in this fashion design class:

This course is for students who want to learn how to design, construct, and sew their own garments, including pattern making. Students begin by developing original pattern blocks explore pattern drafting and draping, then document their three dimensional exploration with photography and/or drawing.

Through visits to the Fashion Resource Center at SAIC and the Art Institute of Chicago in combination with research and sketchbooks, students develop their own concept and design from flat and paper patterns to final fabric construction. 

The class also utilizes a wide variety of materials to build concept and execution, such as paper, muslin, second hand clothing, and fabric off the bolt. The work produced in this class allows students to reflect and expand on their own personal style and ambition while learning the skills to construct a garment from start to finish. 

The course culminates in a runway show with image documentation of the creative process.
