One week fashion design summer course for teenagers.

On this course you will learn how to create fashion concepts, taking your designs from an initial idea and sketch to a developed garment.

Nottingham is famous for its fashion industry, being the home of international designer Paul Smith and a host of innovative boutique stores. And NTU students have been winning awards at all the major fashion competitions for many years. So why not become part of the creative action and develop your fashion knowledge and portfolio on our annual summer course, perfect for the next generation of fashion designers.

During this course you will:

develop your personal approach to fashion concept development
research themes and trends and apply them to your work
explore fashion ideas in 2D and 3D
learn how to create contemporary fashion illustrations
experiment with draping fabric on a mannequin to create contemporary fashion forms
produce a garment using unconventional, second hand materials.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course you will have a portfolio of new drawings and designs, plus examples of working in 3D.

You will have real hands-on experience of what it is like to be a fashion student at university, and an understanding of what admissions tutors are looking for. It is ideal if you are looking to progress into fashion design, accessory design or costume.
