Credits: 3

This course provides students the opportunity to deepen their level of specialization within the discipline of fashion design. Students will use construction techniques as creative tools to be utilized as means to design. This will encourage them to develop an individualized self-initiated approach to fashion design creating their own concept with a method to translate a 2D idea into 3D forms. This course emphasizes sustainable design by reinterpreting craftsmanship while considering the environmental/social impact connected to materials in the goal of diverting waste from landfill giving new life and value. It is structured in 2 phases: Phase 1: Sourcing and Exploration Students will research meaningful materials and extrapolate traditional treatments or/and manipulations. Keywords established during the concept development may dictate the choice of the texturing method or/and construction technique. To be creative and innovative, students are encouraged to explore textiles and forms without predetermined outcomes. Phase 2: Design, Production and Use In a sustainable design cycle of a fashion product, phase 1 covers the “end-of-life” sector as well as the beginning of the design phase in exploring materials and experimenting with textures and forms. Phase 2 will allow the students to consider the entire sustainable design cycle holistically with Design, Production and Use. Students will propose a design for a specific need or for a specific target consumer and make the prototype.
