Our Fashion Design unit is part of the Design I class. It is approximately 3 weeks in length and covers the history of fashion design, ethical and moral issues related to fashion, the impact of social issues on fashion design throughout time, sustainable design, the principles and elements of design and an annual fashion show from recycled clothing. Projects have included figure drawing, fashion illustration, drawing flats, designing nature inspired clothes, culture fashion boards, and an all-school clothing drive for an area homeless shelter.
Annual Fashion Show
Fashion Design students collaborated with parent-partners to create original fashion designs from ONLY recycled materials. Students then had the real-world experience of coordinating an all-school fashion show. Students also held a school-wide clothing drive in conjunction with the fashion show.
