In Fashion Design, students learn about the basics of fashion design while studying professional fashion practices. Students draw croquis', sew, and construct garments.
Many of you strive to be fashion designers. Fashion designers work extremely hard to be successful. Shows like Project Runway and America's Next Top Model let us see how they operate. You all will be learning about famous fashion designers, their collections, and how they operate. Alexander McQueen passed away a few years ago, but his designs live on. Sarah Burton designs for McQueen. You will be like Sarah Burton for this project.
Your assignment is to research a famous fashion designer and his/her Spring collection. You will create a presentation board based upon the designer’s collection. That board will include your own personal croquis that includes an outfit you designed that could be included in the collection. You will also write a biography about the designer.
