HMG 171 Creating and Producing a Fashion Line
To be a truly successful fashion designer you must have an understanding of the "realities" of the business. Can your garments be constructed? Where? With what money? How do you make them in large quantities and various sizes? How does it get into stores? Which stores? Learn about Production Management and how to make visions come to life. As the course evolves, you will modify your line so it reflects real-world practices. You will leave with your revised line to present to buyers and investors with a business plan, sourced materials, and pricing.
