The School of Fashion Design offers a cutting edge,
program for the next generation of designers. Ideal for both beginner
and advanced level students, our Fashion Academy program provides
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.
Four 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.
