Human beings have been making clothing from various materials for thousands of years -- with an eye toward beauty, as well as functionality. What makes a good design? How has fashion impacted society, and how has society driven fashion over time? In this series, we will dive into the artistry and principles of fashion design. We will cover the basics of garment construction, the vocabulary of clothing design, the history and variety of textiles, and trend forecasting. *Note: a sewing machine is NOT required for this class, and no previous design or sewing experience is needed.
