What you'll learn in this fashion design class:

This advanced course is for students who have taken the Early College Program Fashion Construction class or have substantial experience with sewing and/or constructing garments. Students focus on increasing their skills by creating more advanced designs and garments and producing self-driven projects with faculty guidance and peer engagement. 

Continued experimentation with paper, muslin, second hand clothing, and fabric off the bolt is combined with visits to SAIC's Fashion Resource Center and the Art Institute of Chicago to deepen knowledge of clothing as a language, how garments communicate, and what they signify. The course culminates in a runway show with image documentation of the creative process.

Note: 
After enrolling for any children's classes, CourseHorse will reach out to you with additional paperwork which must be completed in order to stay enrolled in the classes. If you'd like to get a head start on the children's class consent form which is mandatory or the allergy forms which are optional, you can access them HERE
