Do you have a passion for fashion? Join us at The Craft Lounge for an exciting hands-on fashion and design sketching program. Using a fashion croquis template, our “fashionistas” will learn how to develop design sketches to communicate their fashion creativity. This course also includes fabric rendering, creative inspiration, designing a coordinated grouping, and presentation layout.
Week 1: Introduction to the Fashion Croquis — Students create a design sketch.
Week 2: Developing the Fashion Croquis: Creating Varied Poses — Students create a fashion layout of 3-4 poses.
Week 3: Design Inspiration — Using Mondrian as inspiration, students design a mini collection of swim suits.
Week 4: Design Development — Students create a coordinated mix & match grouping with denim as the featured fabric.
Week 5: Fabric Rendering — Denim, polka dots, stripes, lace, sheer, checks & plaids.
Week 6: Creating the “Professional” Fashion Presentation of their Denim Collection — Mood board, fabric, board, design board.
