During this 5-day workshop, the concept will be based on #streetstyle #florals #print #sweatshirt #urbanfashion

Explore, research & develop ideas under the concept of #streetstyle. We will teach and demonstrate how to push your creative boundaries and take inspiration from the catwalk, social media, etc.
Stage 2: Design Development:
Develop & refine fashion design ideas, mood boards, colour palettes, garment silhouette/shape – bring these elements together to create a fashion collection.
Stage 3: Fabric Printing & Surface Design:
A white cotton sweatshirt fabric will be the basis for all the designs within this course and elements of fabric printing/fabric surface design, based on the #florals concept will be incorporated. Fabric printing techniques will be taught by a industry specialist
Stage 4: Technical Fashion Skills:
Learn how to use the sewing machine & overlocker, master basic seams and techniques required for making a garment.
Stage 5: Garment Production:
Produce a ‘final’ garment: Students will be taught how to manage and cut fabric into garment pieces and work through the ‘technical’ process of making a garment.
Stage 6: Fashion Styling & Photoshoot:
Learn how to style your final garment with the help of a talented fashion stylist and have it photographed in a magazine-style photo shoot.
Stage 7: Entrepreneurial:
“Hypothetically speaking, how would you market & sell garments under your label and who would you sell it to?” Students can create a short business & marketing plan to gear them up for the real world.
Most materials, equipment, fabric, haberdashery and digital photography file will be included in the price.
