Yes yes! That's what we're talking about this month! Now we are done with the creative part and have our sketches and story boards, our colourways and have chosen our fabrics. What next?! It's time to produce the garments!!!
Those who followed the series or who attended FEC 1 - 3, would tell you that we started from scratch!
Volume 1 with its theme "Understanding Fashion, the Industry & its Related Fields" treated how to Spot Career & Business Opportunities in the Fashion Industry, the Design & Production Process and How to Discover the Designer in ourselves. (A rerun will hold this Saturday 19 May and registrations are on-going - last topic to be substituted with "Developing Simple Operational Structures in our Fashion Business).
Volume 2 treated "Concept Development in Fashion Design"... basically how to develop a collection from nothing and how to build on an idea. as well as teaching "Sketching & Figure Drawing for Fashion Design". Basically we taught people how to draw!
Volume 3 with its theme "Colours & Fabrics" treated "Understanding Colour, its Psychological Effects & How to Effectively Combine Colours", "Fabrics, Fabric Properties, their Uses & Care" and participants developed their own colour wheels.
So now that we have the different elements of our storyboards and have our designs, it's time to produce the garments!!! And that's what our Fashion Entrepreneurship Course (Vol. 4) is about!
