A collection can be any number of different garments, from a few exclusive pieces with different design elements to a large selection of varied styles. More important than the number of pieces is the point the collection is making - its fashion statement. This introductory course will take you through the various steps to building a collection, from conception and range planning through to design and presentation.
Students will first establish the purpose of their collection and the market they are aiming at.
The next step is to find a theme to stimulate a visual interpretation.
An intense research process follows, where often quite vague ideas have to be pinned down and the direction of the collection established, resulting in the right choice of fabric, colour and silhouette.
A storyboard is then put together to clarify your intentions and visually lay out the size and diversity of each story and of the entire range.
Then the designing takes place. Designs are chosen, altered and redrawn and as they evolve a well-balanced collection is achieved.
Entry requirements: None
Please note: This course is for students aged 18 and older
