The fashion theme this summer is “Botanica Britannica,” an encyclopedic exploration of the magical worlds of flora and fungi (also known as mushrooms and plant life). We will explore how this colorful natural environment translates into and influences art and fashion design. We will create an online fashion publication that showcases a portfolio created by each designer including the stages of creating a unique fashion collection – from mood boards to textile design, from color stories to photo editorials. Students will learn how to create fashion illustrations, and more advanced students can move into the creation of garments. The publication will become a living document that will also result in a real-world publication/catalogue printed and shared at the culmination of camp. In addition to a deep dive into the fashion world, these sessions will also help students sharpen their portfolio-building skills.
