- Day 1: Inspiration
We’ll start the camp by looking through magazines, swatches, photographs and art, looking for the kernel of inspiration that will be the foundation of your new collection.
- Day 2: Textiles
Today we’ll explore the process of fabric painting, printing, or dyeing. This is the foundation of all fashion design.
- Day 3: Shapes and Silhouettes
Sleek or billowy? Wide or narrow? These are choices you will learn to make based on the effect you hope to create.
- Day 4: Illustration
Illustration style can profoundly affect the impression of your designs. Today we’ll experiment with a variety of techniques to capture the essence of your collection.
- Day 5: Creating the book
Using the materials, drawings and inspiration we’ve collected over the past several days, we’ll put together a concept book for your new fashion collection.
