New Course Offerings
Are you into the Art of Fashion?
Fashion design and illustration are the backbone of the clothing industry. Every piece of clothing begins the trip to the runway with a picture. Now you can learn how to create the image that will bring your fashion ideas to life using fashion industry standard software and hand drawing techniques.
Coming for the 2012 /2013 school year are 2 NEW course offerings in computer assisted design for fashion illustration.
CAD for Fashion I – Learn how basic software applications, like Adobe Photoshop, InDesign and CAD can be used in the fashion design industry
CAD for Fashion II – Build on the knowledge gained in CAD Fashion I and work with Adobe Illustrator to create your own designs
Both courses bring real world practices into the classroom with examples of product development research and documentation, trending fashion, goods estimation, the use of production design boards, marketing, merchandising and product presentation. You will leave the program with the skills you will need to compete in the design room and in the marketplace.
