Styled to Rock! Join our edgy rock and roll design team to create fashion-forward looks for a pop star celebrity icon! Each of the fashion design workshops will allow you to gain a taste of real life experience in the design room. Each workshop will focus on one of the four processes of fashion design development: fashion research, illustration, technical flats, and construction techniques. These workshops are upbeat, high-energy and fun! We will incorporate students’ interests in music, media and current scene trends in each workshop. So take one to immerse yourself in one design aspect or take all four to complete your fashion-forward look.
