Master Course: “A Cut Above”

The focus of this unit is on creating clothing for yourself that is a cut above the rest. Clothing  not only look better but also  fit better. Styles will not be restricted by colour or fashion trends you do not like.

This course is designed for students with skills and knowledge gained during years 7,8 and 9, to build on those skills whilst still catering for those who are less experienced. Students will study fashion trends and eras of fashion in order to create a unique outfit for themselves.

Designs will be created to suit a client’s needs and students will learn to present rapid fire sketches and storyboards to showcase their ideas.

They will use a range of materials, recycled items of clothing, machines and skills, to cut patterns and construct and evaluate the items they make.
