The course offered a lot of the things
that I was interested in and it’s helped my illustrating skills and my sewing
skills. Color theory, design elements and design principles. They also learn how to
do fashion illustration. They use the Photoshop program to enhance their own
drawings and produce fashion layouts. The fashion cycle and how you do with trends.
Basic sewing techniques. They find out where fashion has been and how it’s
changed. How you take something from fiber, to yarn, to fabric, to design, to
manufacturing, to merchandising. Things such as buying and advertising, marketing.
There’s also illustrating, a stylist, fashion show coordinator. They actually
go through the design process and create three particular garments that are
showcased in the senior capstone show. If you have any inkling that you want to be
in the fashion industry or in the fashion world after high school, this is
a really good place to get started. It’s like a family and it’s really fun to
come to everyday and it’s like a good, fun, creative outlet. If you find
something you’re passionate about you will always be successful.
