Each student researched a specific company and/or collection of their choosing to identifiy gaps in assortment for a specific season’s offerings. Three designs were then developed to address those openings and presented to the class. A vote was taken to determine which design would continue through the prototyping process.
Students constructed paper prototypes, drafted flat patterns, sewed multiple muslin samples, and ultimately produced final prototypes in fabrics appropriate to their company’s brand aesthetic. They researched, sourced, and some even hand made their own hardware and interior support materials.
