Course Content

This fashion course online consists of the following three units:

Unit 1 - Introduction to Fashion Design

The opening course unit provides candidates with a useful overview of the fashion industry as it stands today, while at the same time exploring design trends and movements from important fashion eras. Movements from the 20th, 19th and 18thcenturies are explored and discussed, along with how the professional fashion designer must be able to predict and pre-empt future movements and trends.

Unit 2 - Elements and Principles of Design

Course Unit 2 turns attention to the most important principles and elements of design.  Candidates are guided through the four primary design elements – textures, colours, shapes and lines – exploring each individually and as a component element in creating an overall concept.  The design principles of emphasis, balance, harmony and repetition are also introduced and discussed at length, both independently and in conjunction with one another.

Unit 3 - The Use of Colour in Fashion Design

The final unit of the course introduces candidates to the most important considerations and fundamentals when it comes to using colour strategically as a fashion designer.  From colour selection to ensuring total cohesion and avoiding clashes, candidates build a much deeper understanding of strategic colour use. Unit 3 also touches upon the basics of dress design.
