Fashion Design Course
Why attend a course in fashion design in Florence? Because important designers such as Gucci, Coveri, Cavalli, Ferragamo, Patrizia Pepe, Emilio Pucci and many others have worked and are working in Florence, because the city is home to many museums dedicated to fashion: the museum Ferragamo, Gucci museum, the museum Capucci, the museum of costume, the museum of textile fabric and others. Finally, many shops and workshops operate in this sector.
The Fashion Design Course of the Leonardo da Vinci Academy of Florence is a basic course for whoever wishes to tackle fashion design in a practical way. It begins with learning how to design the human body, with a study of the human anatomy and the various positions of the human body, in order to introduce the constructive techniques of the figure that the sketches and fashion illustrations will be designed on. The course then analyzes models, accessories, decoration techniques, visual fashion communication, and fundamental concepts of fashion marketing. Lastly, it discusses the theory and symbolism of color (scale, contrast, harmony) and the use of professional felt-tip markers, colored pencils, watercolors, chalks. Additionally, the course talks about fabrics, and explains and experiments with the application of techniques that are representative of different types of fabric. The students will then attempt to create their own collections by choosing and developing a theme according to the various phases of the planning system:
Phase 1: Creative research through magazines, newspapers, catalogs or pictures taken by students around the city.
Phase 2: Tendency synthesis with the creation of a tendency panel that demonstrates the research done on the chosen theme.
Phase 3: Development of the theme through fashion sketches and illustrations.
Phase 4: Data sheets with technical drawings.
Phase 5: Study and creation of presentation pages of the collection.
Phase 6: Collection presentation.
During the course the history of fashion and costume design is taught and style trends are analyzed in order to help the students to completely understand them and to stimulate the creation of a personal style.
