About Little Hands Design
By learning the rules, you can break the rules! We have developed our own methods, tricks and tips to create pieces that can run head to head with the 'Professionals'...
Let's do it the Little Hands’ way!!!
Little Hands Design approaches the fashion industry from the opposite end of the garment creation process. Rather than a focus on research, conception and design drawing, Little Hands finds its niche in providing students with practical skills and a way of approaching problems which enables them to find solutions for themselves. Our work is project based, the skills and the way in which you are encouraged to approach any difficulties along the way are universally transferable. You will learn to work things out for yourself and find your own solutions rather than merely providing you with steps which you blindly follow and forget immediately. You gain a practical approach and a deep understanding of how designing and making works, acquired through trying and doing and questioning what you do and how you go about it. The skill set gained at the courses is invaluable and means that when you begin to design you are constantly thinking about how what you imagine or draw can be realised. Some would say that this limits your creativity, but an individual well informed of what is possible when dealing with different materials is actually far less limited, as at the end of the day people can’t say to you: ‘that design can’t be made’ (and if they do, you turn around and say: ‘yes, it can if you do X, Y and Z’).
We enjoy having a platform to help each individuals’ unique style to emerge instead of working with the confines of 'what is in' or 'trendy'. Get personal with your projects and see what you CAN DO!
