Young girls graduate from playing dress up to designing their own fashions by using the same design principles used by professionals. Basic sketching techniques, coordinating colors for the best effect, mixing textures and patterns for scale and perception and applying cultural fashion history to each girl’s individual style and portfolio will be covered. Designs come to life with beautifully patterned papers, ribbons, sequins, jewels and oodles of other embellishments. Collaborative “design team” challenges make this hands-on, minds-on adventure into the world of design very exciting. No sewing is done in this class. Instruction provided by Fastforward Kids.
