This online course will teach you the skills required to design your own Fashion Accessories, whether it is a range of Bags, Shoes, or Hats. Through a range of practical and experimental exercises, including different methods of drawing and recording ideas, you will be shown how to use different media to develop a creative style of your own.
Traditional and new methods of working will be explored, and you will learn how to research your ideas and develop your concepts, taking them from the initial stages through to completion. Each week you will be set an assignment which will give you a chance to practice and apply your skills, and weekly feedback will help you to progress your work throughout the duration of the course and show you how to create both exciting and innovative designs.
You should have an interest in the subject area and some experience of the fashion industry. Some experience of drawing and designing is helpful, but not essential.
Why choose an LCF online learning short course?
Our online learning short courses allow you to experience London College of Fashion wherever you are in the world. The real-time chat sessions are fully interactive allowing you to communicate easily with the tutor at the same time as fellow students. You will participate in the live classes each week and you will undertake weekly assignments to be completed in your own time.
Please make sure you are available to participate in the live online chat sessions which are run to UK time. All online learning courses include weekly chat sessions with your tutor and other students on the course, which are conducted through an interactive seminar (called Blackboard Collaborate). The chat sessions will include text and voice/video chat, as well as an opportunity to 'share' your tutor's desktop so that they can navigate you through websites, powerpoint presentations and other work. These sessions are essential to attend each week, so please check the times of the course when you book and take into account any local time differences. You may also be required to undertake weekly assignments between sessions. These will be housed on our Workflow website, along with additional resources and discussion forums which can be used to interact with fellow students in between classes. You may be expected to dedicate between one - two hours a week to these self-study projects. A full technical specification is listed in 'Materials'.
