This course is for young people who love fashion design and would like to know more! Specifically designed with the beginner in mind the course will guide you through the design process for fashion design. You will work from a set brief through the research process to generate and develop new ideas for fashion: Womenswear, Menswear, Fashion Design with textiles (print or knit), Gender Neutral and beyond.
The course is project-based and encourages the development of ideas, experimentation and creative approaches to fashion design and fashion illustration, which underpin and define the spirit of fashion study at Central Saints Martins.
Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of fashion design study through: research, documentation of ideas with sketchbooks, creative fashion illustration, experimentation, development of concepts, 2D to 3D experimentation, design presentation and portfolio preparation and advice for further study at FE or HE level.
The course offers a taster of more advanced university-level modes of study and therefore students are expected to engage with independent learning within their project work.
The course is co-taught by visiting designers, fashion practitioners, working independently or with international brands, and graduates from Central Saint Martins.
