Fashion Design

Make Your Designs Runway-Ready!

Developmental Activation: precision, fine motor skills, sensory input

During Fashion Design activities, your child’s inner seamstress or tailor or clothing designer is inspired to create. Children can explore a wide range of textiles and clothing materials. Instructors will guide them to determine what fabric is best suited for their desired garment. They may choose a bedazzled mesh for a dress, denim for some cool doll shorts, a cheetah print for a bold accessory, and much more. Techniques in drawing, weaving, collaging, and styling are incorporated to create something truly runway-ready!

Each FASHION DESIGN activity will include elements of the following:

Introduction to fashion design:
Children will learn about the basics of fashion design and the different elements that go into creating a fashion design, such as color, texture, and silhouette.

Drawing fashion sketches:
Children will learn how to draw basic fashion sketches, including the use of different tools and techniques for sketching clothing and accessories.

Introduction to fabrics:

Presenting fashion designs:
