This course introduces students to the fast-paced world of the Apparel Industry. Students learn about the design and manufacturing process, apparel wholesale, and retail markets. They may use various sketching techniques and computer programs to create a portfolio including their own initial stages of product development, research, and a final clothing line. Students will learn appropriate industry terminology, soft goods construction techniques like pattern drafting and sewing, and core concepts of textile science, factory production, marketing, cultural diversity, sustainability, and ethics in fashion. In this program, students are exposed to some of the many possibilities in this career pathway and guided on how to professionally engage with the industry and its opportunities. The course then culminates in a student-produced fashion show!
