来自伦敦艺术大学中央圣马丁艺术学院的 SUMMER STUDY ABROAD - FASHION DESIGN MENSWEAR，该课程涵盖了一名男装设计师所要体验的所有过程，其中涵盖了研究，专业知识和男装设计的整个设计流程，这些知识都将提高你的设计能力。
This is a three week module that takes a very hands-on approach to the exploration of one of the most important aspect of contemporary menswear – menswear as product – a contemporary garment based on a traditional work-wear jacket. You will spend the first week doing research, having talks and seminars from denim / work-wear specialists and experts, looking at both the contemporary manifestations of this genre of product, but also the origins, historical context and vintage collections. Emphasis will be on details, fabrics, fabrications and whole garment treatments.
In week 1 you will swiftly move into design development on paper, sketching exhaustively, You will be required to focus on the whole garments and the way it relates to the wearer, but also to focus on details – down to the individual stitch. Work-wear and denim have a unique fabrication story and methods and students are expected to respect this, follow it, but to also push boundaries and creativity.
The following 2 weeks will then be devoted to the realisation of your product. You will be shown how to draft a pattern from a vintage garment, and how to work through the construction of prototype “toile” garments to finalise the exact shape. You will also be experimenting with sample details such as pockets, collars and cuffs, rivets and other trims. You will select your choice of fabrics and then make your final piece. If time allows you will be encouraged to experiment with garment treatments.
The end results aims to be a contemporary work-wear jacket, inspired by a traditional/ vintage piece. Garment treatment will be discussed, and if time allows experimented with.
