Students were able to see how a line is created first hand from the sketches and specifications to the material selections and cost sheets. They were amazed as they saw all the details that go into planning a show. Our creative director gave the students the basic concepts and then they brainstormed on accessories and how to tie all the pieces together using color and structure. Some of the student pieces were shown on the runway while others were shown in photos for the website. Several students were able to do hands-on work on garments.
On Saturday night the students were able to attend the night of "Project Runway" shows. They were captivated by the ingenuity and creativity of these designers.
On the final night the students were able to experience the back stage process and all that is a part of a runway show. They were able to experience first hand the hustle and bustle of fittings, dressing, and accessorizing the models. It was a completely different experience after first seeing how smoothly the show runs, and then to see how it is put together. This was a lifetime experience for the students as they saw first handedly all of the ins and outs of how real life situations occur. The students' work was under the Creative Director's sustainable couture line "Lenzanita."
