Fashion camp for future designers Our fashion camp is the best! Fashion Design is an exciting field of study and career choice. It is a major offered by the University, and that creates an enormous benefit for our Summer Scholars students. Our fashion design summer camp students have the luxury of using first-class, university-level equipment in a professional and academic setting. Each student will have access to their own sewing machine, their own drafting table, and tons and tons of supplies. From scissors and pens and thread to cloth and fabric and accessories, our fashion design summer camp students have a lot to work with! Imagine being surrounded by the right gear, and time to learn. Imagine several classrooms filled with all sorts of gear, sewing machines, tables, equipment, mannequins, and more… Coursework Each week features the following coursework. Students who attend more than one session will continue learning without repetition. Skill Building: Sketching, Stitching and Sewing Our fashion design major is the perfect class for a budding fashion designer! Many University-level fashion design students have poor mechanics and fundamentals, which impact their academic and professional performance. This course will help our fashion design summer camp students develop and polish their skills. The ability to quickly sketch ideas is critical to fashionistas. During the week, our students learn the conventions of fashion sketching. Templates are provided to help students create their own poses and experiment with technique and style. Presenting and articulating creative ideas in a sketch is critical to success. In the stitching portion of the course, our fashion design summer camp students learn to read a commercial pattern, layout and cut fabric properly, use commercial sewing machines, and finish seams. Sewing by hand is another skill all fashion designers need. Who knows when they will need to quickly sew something on the fly! That’s what field trips are for! That’s why our students learn many hand-sewing techniques. Dexterity, safety, speed, and professional level skills are introduced to our students. Being able to quickly and professionally sew and put together original pieces is a critical component of any designers’ skill set.
