WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT: Study the history of fashion with an emphasis on Hollywood and the world of fashion and entertainment. How do you tell a story and develop a character through the design of a costume? Students will be given a "treatment" to work with and develop a collection of designs for a specific character, celebrity, or event. Through inspiration boards, sketching, and fabric selection, students will create their costume collection that will be presented on the last day of class. Students will also learn special effects and glamorous make-up tricks used on film sets. Plus a field trip to Hollywood Paramount Studio's costume department!
