Fashion Design is an exciting field of study and career choice. It is a major offered by the College, and that creates an enormous benefit for our Summer Scholars students. Our fashion design summer camp students have the luxury of using first-class, College-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.
Our fashion design major is the perfect class for a budding fashion designer! Many college-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.
Every designer needs a portfolio. For school, for jobs, for life, a high-quality portfolio is absolutely essential. Our students will discuss in detail the elements of a good portfolio and work to collate their own best work into a clean, well-rounded portfolio. By the end of the session, each student will have several items to add to their portfolio, including sketches and drawings, actual hand-made pieces, and more. But even more importantly, each student will have a better, more full and complete understanding of what comprises a comprehensive portfolio. We want our students to have the tools to put their best work on display, to help achieve all of their hopes and dreams.
If you love any of the amazing fashion shows on TV, then you have an idea what this course is all about. Feel the drama build as you find yourself in your own reality fashion week at CSS! This portion of the fashion design summer camp week is about completing work and showing it. We will perfect and improve our individual skills while working as a group toward a presentation and show. It is fun, exciting and intense. Just like our students!
