EDFD303 Paris to Antwerp: Crossing the Fashion Spectrum 3 cr.

This course will examine both the historical heritage of couture design as found through the textiles, techniques and craftsmanship of the designers, as well as a contemporary view of the globalization of fashion and where designers are heading in the future. We will examine how old world techniques continue to shape and work within the technological advancements of the present day. Students will examine how Antwerp has surfaced as a leading innovative force in fashion and what this means in the larger global context. All of this will be accomplished through lectures and coursework throughout the semester and will culminate with a two week travel program to Antwerp and Paris. Students will complete a final project based on their research, exploration and travel experiences.
