The world of fashion is a growing industry, which offers a vast array of possibilities for professionals with different profiles. Therefore, it is not only an interesting and attractive field but also an actual opportunity to find employment. Many young people know which career they wish to follow but others are still weighing the different options.

The Summer Course in Fashion Design Junior is geared towards young students who have a very clear intention of becoming Fashion designers (this course will provide them with more specific knowledge about the different steps in the design process), as well as youngsters who have still not decided which professional path they are going to follow and are keen to gain some experience in the world of design.

Objectives

The course is intended to boost motivation, confidence and self-knowledge, so that the students incorporate the experiences they learn into their own academic path and personal life, and they gain a better understanding of the way fashion designers think and work.

The syllabus is conceived to build up a space where each one of them can create bonds and share their distinctive features. The course provides the technical knowledge needed so that the students can each develop their own fashion-related ideas.

The fashion design process is laid out so that they can understand how important observation, research, concept association, logic and communication are for developing a concept. This development allows the research, experimentation, modelling and different representational techniques to be put into practice. A sketchbook will be created to document the entire creative process and from this material a portfolio will be built up.

 

Methodology

The course is designed as an immersion in the world of fashion design.

It is a very practical course in which each student does different exercises to understand the characteristics and tools needed by a designer to create a collection. The exercises require not only the time dedicated to them in class but also for the students to work on research and design development in order to complete their projects.
