Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Fashion Collection

Develop a concept for a fashion line. Make moodboards, swatch cards, technical drawings, and fashion sketches of your finished collection.

Costume Design

This project involves developing a costume design concept for theatre or film from initial concept sketches and visual research to technical drawings by hand or in Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop

Historical fashion Research

This project involves learning how to conduct research and sketch technical drawings to produce historically accurate reproductions of clothing from a particular time period (for example: Regency era, Edwardian period, 1930's, 1950's). Depending on the student's previous experience, this project could also have a sewing component.
