This course is a follow-on from 'Introduction to Fashion Design' or for you if you've some design experience and wish to improve your skills. The course will help you develop your understanding of the principles of fashion design, with an emphasis on three-dimensional experimentation. You'll work with fabric directly onto dress mannequins and your experimental ideas will then be developed onto paper. This course will help you consolidate your understanding of fashion design.
The course includes:
- Development of primary and secondary research
- Creating research sheets and mood boards
- Colour and fabric selection
- Draping on the mannequins using fabric
- Experimental design analysis
- Refining design ideas for your chosen market
- Exploring different art media
- Range planning
Level:Intermediate. You should have completed the beginners level course or have equivalent experience.
