+ Visit to Gucci Flagship & Berwick Street Fabric Shops
Tuesday 30th May 2017 –
Max. 15 Students – Ages 10+
£75 Per Student – inc. travel and presentation
We are SO excited to announce this trip here at The Fashion School! Adults also very welcome by the way as you will find the process of how fashion is forecasted fascinating.
It is a day trip exclusive – visiting the headquarters of the biggest industry fashion prediction company WGSN, where we shall have an insightful lecture, learn about the process of trend prediction and its importance and value in the industry, discovering the origins of trends and the influence trend prediction has across the fashion industry.
Students will then engage in an activity predicting key trends for AW17/18 drawing their ideas from catwalk collections and provided reference material.
Following this we shall be visiting the incredible Gucci store on Sloane Street where the students can see Alessandro Michele’s wonderful colourful creations in the flesh, and get a real feel for the fabrics, embroideries and finishes before finally a visit to the renowned Berwick Street to see some of the best fabric shops in the UK – what a day! This one is not to be missed!
We've created teenage specific workshop over half term. No one under 13 unfortunately as we will be focussing on developing transferable skills useful for GCSE Art and Textiles. This workshop is an ideal follow up to the Easter sketchbook workshop.
Fashion Prediction Workshop with Caroline. Wed 31st May and Thurs 1st June.
10 – 3pm. Ages 10 + £110
Would you like to forecast trends before they happen?
How does this exciting process of research, deciding colours, silhouettes, patterns, fabrics, detailing etc work?
What is a mood board?
Predict and design a trend package within a sketchbook for Spring/Summer 2018 and learn how the fashion world uses companies such as WGSN. This is not a sewing workshop. (This workshop can work in conjunction with our trip to WGSN ON Tuesday 30th May but not essential.) Build on your research, illustration and analytical skills.
