Although Fashion Club is not a structured class our seasoned instructors are on hand every step of the way for guidance on choosing fabrics, garment construction, and understanding new techniques. Young designers entering Fashion Club will already have a pretty high level of experience but the idea behind Fashion Club is to give students the creative space to push their sewing and design skills toward mastery! As our students progress toward college we will add master and portfolio classes for those who are applying to design schools.

STUDENTS IN FASHION CLUB CONTINUE TO GAIN EXPERIENCE IN:

  • reading and transferring patterns

  • following pattern instructions

  • using the sewing and serger machines proficiently

  • garment construction using industry techniques

  • design principles and fashion illustration

  • fabric construction, properties, and how to use them

  • introduction to draping
