[Un] Fashion

Spring 2019

Taught By: Gabriel Asfour

Section: A

CRN: 5049

Credits: 3

Embedded in an understanding of culture, history and place, students in this course will design with the body and their own identities as the principal site of exploration. Questioning their assumptions of fashion, students will expand their definitions of dress, garment, accessory, costume, fashion photography and fashion publications through critical exercises and projects for the body. The exercises and projects will include experimentation and exploration with construction, materials, forms, color, and issues of representation; and will be developed through a process of research and making of approximately fifteen garments in fifteen weeks. Open to: All university undergraduate degree students.
