VDIS10041 Fabric in Fashion
Credit Points 10
Fabric supports design. A well-chosen fabric can enhance the design in its appearance, hand feel and wear ability. Well-balanced collections have a selection of fabrics, from woven to jersey and knitwear. It is the blending of different fabrics together that can give diversity and strength to a collection. Choosing the right fabric for a design comes from an understanding of fibres and fabric construction. This subject will enable students to recognise different cloth suitable for their chosen designs, identifying a wide range of fibres and fabrics used in the clothing industry.
