Get a taste of fashion with this one-week course at The Cass, London Met's acclaimed art, architecture and design school. You'll learn the basic principles of design and how to organise your ideas into a coherent piece of work.
If you are a beginner interested in fashion design, this one-week introductory course is for you. It will teach you how to embark on your own fashion design journey, giving you an understanding of the basic principles of design and aesthetics. The course will take you through the practical and analytical stages of the two-dimensional design process, including a taster of 3D creative experimentation.
You'll learn how to get started on research, utilise sources of information and to develop opinions of what you see, therefore uncovering interesting aspects that will enable you to generate new and original ideas. You'll also gain an understanding of the design brief, introductory fabric awareness, how to organise visual research and communicate ideas through the creation of mood, colour, concept boards and design sketches, consolidated into a themed 2D mini collection.
This course is for beginners or those new to the specific world of fashion design. The course is aimed at those who wish to learn the process designers undertake in order to design original outcomes, whilst developing their own creative signature.
This course is ideal for those who would like to develop and supplement their skills prior to applying to a higher education course or for those who wish to enhance and understand their employability.
Whilst no previous experience is necessary, it is important that you have an interest in fashion.
On this week-long course you will complete a design brief and compile a body of work, which can then be used within a broader portfolio as evidence of your skills in this area. During this course you will have the opportunity to participate in class discussion, develop your theoretical knowledge, carry out practical work to improve your skills and present your work to the group. You will be supported and encouraged to practise and develop your skills through group critiques and tutor feedback.
