Design and create a jumpsuit! Designers will explore NOLA patterns and designs and will learn about fashion trends inspired by the theme. Our designers will choose their own fabric from an array of fun patterns suitable for this occasion. Our accessory project of the week will be decorative masks for each designer. At the end of the week, each designer will go home with their wearable jumpsuit as well as fashion sketches and any other fashion projects they work on during the week.
Our students [Fashion Designers] start with the sketch (croquis), technical details, choosing and rendering the fabric, learning the proper way to make a pattern, including measuring each other, understanding the importance of this process and the fit of the garment. They learn how to pin and sew using a sewing machine. Then, they sew the entire garment including the final fitting. Finally, on the last day of our camp, we hold our Fashion Show. During our fashion summer camp weeks, we add fashion challenges (i.e. Newspaper challenges, trash bag challenges), for our designers to explore their innermost fashion taste and skills. Our designers team up with other designers for this quite unique and fun experience. No sewing experience necessary. All fabric, supplies, and use of the sewing machines are included.
