The School of Fashion Design offers a cutting edge, hands-on fashion program for the next generation of designers. Ideal for both beginner and advanced level students, our Teen Fashion Clinics provide teens an opportunity to test their interest in fashion, explore their talents, or get a jumpstart on their fashion education.

The first half of the day is devoted to fashion sketching. Students learn to render the fashion figure first using pencil, then marker and finally watercolor. The second half of the day is devoted to developing sewing and clothing construction skills. Topics such as color and design theory, textiles, and the history of costume are also discussed.

Multiple sessions are offered during the summer, and a weekend program is offered during both fall and spring semesters. The program is offered at our Newbury Street location, in spacious studio classrooms, and taught by our same expert faculty who teach SFD’s regular college level courses.

Topics include:

    •    Fashion Art
    •    Color & Design
    •    Figure Drawing
    •    Fashion Sketching
    •    Portfolio Presentation
    •    Clothing Construction
