Description

Did you know that Napoleonic uniforms and gowns were the inspiration for Dolce & Gabbana's Fall '06 collection, or that Marie Antoinette influenced Dior in 2006? Discover how fashion designers look to the past to design some of today's high fashion! You'll come to embrace the relationship between historic costume and contemporary fashion by examining couture collections and the costumes worn in hit movies in light of their historic influences. During lively class sessions, we'll learn to identify historic time periods, garments, fabrics and construction and fitting methods of the era. Then, with a single time period as a starting point, you'll produce your own design, construction and presentation drawings of historically accurate garments and contemporary fashions based upon them. Note: Students use both hand and machine sewing to construct a simple garment based on historic design. Some sewing skill needed.
