Individuality is the starting point for all fashion design: Students learn how to identify their own personal style as they learn how to open up their creative channels. Students learn to draw the human body and to draw clothing inspired by their selected personal style. They will explore ‘rule-breaking’ with color and tone. Then, they will sketch out their chosen garment and accessory, with attention to detail including; color, fabric & trims. Finally, students create a fashion name and logo for their new fashion identity and take home a finished, framed fashion illustration.

By the end of the course these budding, young designers will get to show off their work to parents at Teens Computer School mini fashion show and take home a unique item of clothing designed and made by them.
