What you'll learn in this fashion class:

This course is a hybrid of the Early College Program Fashion Design and Fashion Construction courses and is for students interested in exploring contemporary fashion design methods and constructing a garment. Students build skills in design research, styling, draping, fabric selection, patternmaking, and sewing. 

Through visits to the Fashion Resource Center at SAIC and the Art Institute of Chicago, students develop their own design concepts in addition to final fabric construction. The course culminates in a runway show with image documentation of the creative process. 

This is a great class for students starting out in fashion who want to explore the various pathways in the field. No experience is necessary to take this course.
