FashionLab Streetwear students will work with a combination of designer deadstock fabrics, second hand denim and their clothing to utilise a variety of textile techniques that will be taught throughout the course to construct their very own streetwear look.
Students will look at a range of topics to influence their designs, from sportswear to music icons, to collage together their designs which will represent their take on streetwear and encapsulate their own personal style! Students will incorporate elements of upcycling into their design which will leave them with great transferable skills to incorporate the sustainable approach of upcycling into their lives outside of The Fashion School.
The tutor will advise the student the whole way through on their own specific project, giving them inspiration and specific and personal technical demonstrations, whilst learning more universal sewing skills.
Some of the specific skills included (tasks, tutor demonstrations and presentations): Rolled hem, Invisible zip, Standard Zips, Different machine feet, Collars, Pockets, Basic Pattern Cutting, Fly Zip, Cuffs, Heat Pressing, how to cut fabrics, choosing the right needle for specific fabrics.
