Mood Fabric Structured Learning Experience 2014
The seniors from the Fashion Design and Merchandising program visited Mood Fabrics in New York City. Mood Fabrics is the store where the design contestants from the Emmy nominated show, Project Runway, shop for their fabrics and trimmings. The fabric purchased by the students will be used to construct garments for FCCLA competitions and the County Prep Fashion Show. During this structured learning experience, students demonstrated their planning and time management skills, critical thinking, and problem solving strategies as well as research skills and the elements and principles of visual art. Cost analyses were used to determine the fabric consumption of the purchases. We look forward to seeing the finished designs on the runway this April at the County Prep fashion show.
