Our students [Fashion Designers] start with the sketch (croquis), technical details, choosing and rendering the fabric, learning the proper way to measure including measuring understanding the importance of this process and the fit of the garment. They learn how to pin and sew using a sewing machine. Then, they sew the entire garment including the final fitting. Finally, on the last day of our camp, we hold our Virtual Fashion Show.
During our fashion summer camp weeks, if time allows, we add fashion challenges (i.e. Newspaper challenges as well as others as the days go by), for our designers to explore their inner most fashion taste and skills.
