This understanding or the relationship between past and present will serve as a trigger to encourage the discovery of student’s individual interests and aesthetic expression.

Research, sketching, journaling, sourcing and production of 3D projects will occur throughout the semester. This course is a critique-based class that requires presentation of a standard tha is expected of professional fashion designers.
