Intro to Creative Fashion Design, Complete

So I am so excited to say that I have my first fashion design class under my belt. Last night was the final session of my Intro to Creative Fashion Design class and I am pretty proud so say that I made it through, relatively unscathed. I have to say that this class has left me invigorated but also acutely aware of the commitment that I am making. I work a full time job and took this class thinking that I would be able to complete it, no problem. The class was creatively demanding as well as had a bunch of projects, especially toward the end. I found myself nearing the final class, and realizing that I didn't manage my time well. Rushing is not exactly the way that you want to pull the creativity out; I find it is better to let things grow organically... which I will leave more time for in the future. You may have heard that I was accepted into the Fashion Design Program. I am extremely excited and a little nervous, but mostly excited. Up next? I am taking a Fashion Illustration course this Summer. I am really looking forward to filling my fashion toolbox with all sorts of useful knowledge. For now though? I am appreciating the free time I have for the next couple months.


  1. way to go!

  2. woo hoo! way to go Amanda! i remember being in art school and it being a ton of work. Lots of projects and critiques.  And although I love how wonderful the critiques are to help you grow they are always so nerve wrecking too.  Enjoy your summer and good luck on your journey! xoxo
