Fashion Design Short Course (n1) – margo-k

First lesson is always an introduction. I made the presentation of my fashion brand to the Professor to understand adequate level of my studies and form the schedule of our 2 months studying. For me is very interesting to create with a person, who worked for luxury fashion brand with deep history and knowledge. We decided to create a fashion collection based on accessories and simple garments.
Today we discussed all the ideas related to the collection: mood board of inspiration, style of the collection, customer’s image, decorative elements, accessories.
Firstly, there was quick fashion sketching. Accent of collection is concentrated on bags.
After raw imaging all the accessories described relating to each fashion model.
