If you have dreams of becoming the next Karl Lagerfeld or Michael Cinco, then you better start working your way to it now. Renowned UK based fashion college, London College of Fashion (LCF) is bringing it’s Short Courses programme to the Middle East from 20 September – 01 October 2013 featuring high-profile and expert tutors and a range of new and exciting subjects.
For the first time in the Middle East, two brand new courses will be in offer – Handbag Design and Fashion Drawing. The Handbag Design course is ideal as it shows what’s involved in creatively and practically producing a range of bags with coordinating purses or wallets. Students will start with researching, and understanding the market, before exploring fabric selection, current trends in surface decoration, range building and where to manufacture the collection.
The practical Fashion Drawing course will help students explore drawing styles and techniques used in the fashion industry today. The tutor will show how to express designs and ideas figuratively, building up students’ confidence with pencil and paper! Through a series of innovative exercises the class will learn how to draw a fashion figure, sketch garments, and seamlessly combine figures with clothing.
LCF will be hosting a total of ten courses – taught by leaders in the world of fashion education including high profile tutors such as Toby Meadows who recently was a keynote speaker at Fashion Forward Season 1. LCF has designed the courses to offer something to both professionals already within these fields or people who are interested in beginning their career in fashion. LCF has held short course programmes in the Middle East since 2010 due to the increased demand from both local and expat residents.
Being held at the Vida Hotel in Downtown Dubai, the courses are designed for those seeking international standards of tuition from lecturers who are all practicing London fashion professionals. The college is offering a 10% discount on the courses if booked online using the code LCF-ME-10.
