This short course runs on 256 hours over six weeks and regroups three themes: Fashion Design, Pattern Making and Draping and Textile Technology. Upon completion of this program, students were able to create their own mini-collection.

We chose to describe the creation of two garments which are part of these collections. Focus on the creations of two students:Martin Hernandez’s (from Mexico) charcoal grey jacket

Martin started from a drawing he made. He then built the base with his own measurements and went on by defining the length and the shape of the bottom of the jacket. Martin then had to create the pattern for the back and the front and built the sleeve based on a classic blouse model. For his jacket, Martin used a wool and synthetic fabric.

Pryia Soni and her off-white dressFor her part, Pryia Soni, from India, decided to create an off-white dress.

Like Martin, she started off her own drawings. From the construction of a classic blouse, she created the base according to her own measurements. She then could focus on the sleeves made from a classic blouse sleeve on which was added a stitch under the arm and another one on the shoulder. The pattern was first made on paper and used to cut the fabric accordingly. Pryia used a mix of silk and cotton fabric. These two garments are just an example of what was done by the students at the end of this intensive short course. Each and every student realized its own mini-collection.

If you too would like to be able to create garments, find more information about this program on our website on the Fashion Studio page. The next intake will start on March 1st 2017 in Paris.
