FSAD 1120 Fashion Design and Visual Thinking

Course description

(summer only) This course is only offered in the Summer Session.

This course offers a studio experience in thinking about and making fashion. We will explore various media and techniques used in apparel design and develop design images with the ultimate goal of creating a professional-grade portfolio based on one’s individual design aesthetic. Students will be introduced to techniques in the design process and presentation, as well as conventional graphic and digital tools such as Adobe Photoshop. Students will also be exposed to a variety of resources, including Cornell’s Costume and Textile Collection, and cutting-edge technology, including 3-D Body Scanning, Laser Cutting, and innovative functional apparel. Studio sessions comprise lecture, discussion, design charettes, and group critiques. There are no prerequisites for this course; no sewing experience required. Outcome 1: Students will learn to achieve an understanding of the fashion design process. Outcome 2: To explore individual approaches to fashion communication. Outcome 3: To develop the ability to express fashion ideas in two dimensional, three dimensional and digital media.
