This 4-week Fashion Design Fundamentals course is constructed for emerging designers. It allows students to get an overall understanding of the fundamentals required to begin a career as a fashion designer and understand and use the processes and tools professional designers use to create their collections. And what better way to understand the skills and knowledge needed to become a success than learning from a talented fashion designer? Students will be given a hands-on, realistic approach to the world of fashion. 

Qualified students may continue on to the 6-Month Fashion Design course where they are afforded the opportunity to create their own garments, expand their portfolios and prepare themselves for a career in the fashion industry. Or, a designer with some experience in sewing, pattern-making and draping could choose to join our Launch Your Clothing Line Course.
