Fashion as a opportunity

In the fashion industry there are many work positions and many possibilities to explore. If you are a freelance designer, you need to distinguish yourself from the other designers.

You will think about your origins and about how you can stand out in the industry. You will explore the art form of creative pattern making, using the fabric to guide you in the shapes you are able to form.

For this, you will evaluate your practice and focus on how fabric plays an important part in framing the body. Technical skills will be explored to create design ideas through creating silhouettes draping on the bodice.
