Fashion First Workshops is a Fashion Design and Sewing Program for children. Their purpose is to inspire students to learn the fundamentals of sewing, which is the art that has disappeared from our schools. Their students take on the role of a fashion designer and use their own creativity to design, make and model their very own project. They not only foster their creativity but, they also build self esteem. They teach students grades 1-12 the fundamentals of sewing to help explore their creativity. Their students (future Fashion Designers) start with the sketch (croquis) and technical details, choose and render the fabric, learn the proper way to make a pattern, including measuring each other, and understand the importance of this process to the final FIT of the garment. They learn how to pin and how to use a sewing machine to create the entire garment, including the final fitting. Finally, on the last day of their fashion design sewing classes, we hold their very own Fashion Show.
