Creative Technical Studio 1 works collaboratively with the other two core studios. The course builds upon Space and Materiality in a disciplinary context, and it brings design thinking from Integrative Studio and Seminar into fashion making. Form and construction are the two broad topics for Creative Technical Studio 1. In this course students learn skills such as pattern making, draping, sewing and other means of garment construction in a critical and creative context. These suites of skills are presented as creative design tools to be utilized in open, iterative processes, and as means to realizing and executing solutions to design problems. Different inflections provide students with opportunities to concentrate on specific areas of fashion making. Students will acquire a core skill set on which to develop specializations in junior and senior year.
