Fashion Construction is an individual event that recognizes participants who apply garment construction skills learned in their fashion program and create a display using samples of their skills. Using new materials, participants construct in advance a garment of high standards, cost analysis of garment, fabric profiles and a business plan. Students are required to present their project in a verbal presentation.
