Studio classes include the French Couture Fashion Sketch, Fashion Color Laboratorywith the European color palette, Fashion Still Life drawing, Sewing, Made-to-Measure French Couture Pattern Drafting working with the basics of the lower body to develop a Gucci-fit skirt, Luxury Finish Construction, and Runwaywith mock Red Carpet.
French couture made-to-measure is a technique explored primarily in Academy of Couture Art degree programs. Where mostfashion programs explore sizing such as 8 and 10, the Teen Couture Design Club gives participants the advantage by accessing the sophisticated French method of drafting the garment pattern from scratch to shape the unique individual body.
Classes meet weekdays 10:30am to 3:30pm. Courses specializing in fashion careers combined with experiences of our instructors introduce a real-world vision of careers in the industry from couture down to ready-to-wear.
Final exhibition of best work selected by students and faculty are displayed in fashion show presentation. Family and friends are invited to participant designer debuts as they model their garment on the college runway.
