What you'll learn in this fashion design class:

Fashion Designer Fundamentals: From Creating Designs to Running a Business

Discover what a fashion designer really does from a bona fide working New York designer. Begin at FIT learning about the process of design, from inspiration to target customer. Hear about the disciplined planning that turns creative ideas into actual garments. 

Find out how fabrics and trim are sourced, how sketches turn into patterns, and how multiple sizes are planned and executed. An overview of the ins and outs of getting product to market is discussed, including selling, PR, and networking. 

Next, tour local resources used by top designers, including key industry fabric suppliers, trim resources, and little-known stores that are treasure troves of inspiration for designers from around the world, all located in New York City’s Garment District. 

Important details:
  • Food and subway costs not included in course fee. 
  • No same day registration.
