Special Interest Program
Throughout history sewing has been an important skill. It promotes physical coordination, use of all five senses, enhances self-esteem and body image, as well as building confidence and creativity. Designers who take on drafting and sewing learn that it’s not the body that is supposed to fit the clothing, rather the clothing to fit the body type. Students will have the advantage over others to design and create their own one-of-a-kind pieces, they can also alter and re-create clothing they have purchased to better suit their body type. They will be knowledgeable in quality and manufacturing costs of clothing, which will make them a more experienced consumer to compare value and price. If you wish to be a designer in the fashion industry, learning the fine art of drafting and sewing is essential to start your brand.
