At the center of fashion lies the studio experience. Studio 1 introduces the fashion student to the basic skills of draping, patternmaking and garment construction techniques that enable a designer to articulate a design into a garment, a process at the core of fashion design. Students will learn the fundamentals of draping, developing a pattern from the drape and sewing final garments. Studio 1 also orients the student to the environment of a fashion studio working individually and as a team. Additional materials fee will be charged. Students must either pass Garment Structures (FASHN-104) with a C or better, OR pass the Sewing Proficiency Test scheduled during Orientation Week. Additional materials fee will be charged.
