Description

This course will see you design a T-shirt collection and artworks ready to be manufactured. You will work to produce your own collection through four stages of design:

  • Stage 1 - Researching. You will analyse the existing fashion market and recognise niche openings for further brands, creating personal moodboards and sketch books by thinking outside of the box.
  • Stage 2 - Design Development. You will push the boundaries of the basic T-shirt through fabric manipulation and paying attention to detailing and finishes.
  • Stage 3 - Developing Artworks. You will experiment with stencilling, mark-making and embellishment, translating abstract images into all-over repeats and placements.
  • Stage 4 - Evolving Ideas. You will design a final range of T-shirts, working to a lifesize block and will complete a spec package ready to send to an international factory.
