Costume Design

Fall 2019

Taught By: Mimi Maxmen

Section: A

CRN: 7483

Credits: 3

In this course, we will learn the practice, theory, and history of costume design. First, we will be introduced to the different disciplines of costume design including theater, film, dance, and opera. We will learn how to read and breakdown a script, develop concepts, identify and apply research, and design for characters. We will also examine fashion history to support and contextualize our design processes. To complement the course, we will learn about specific professional practices such as building a costume portfolio, costume production from sketch to finished garments, collaborating with directors and choreographers, the job market, and more. Class time will be devoted to observing presentations and demonstrations, performing design exercises, reviewing and analyzing work, visiting costume resources, and realizing final design outcomes. There is no garment making or sewing in this course. Work will be predominantly 2-D. Upon successful completion of this course, students will possess an introductory knowledge of costume design practice and a finalized costume design project.
