Use the Elements of Fashion Design to Tell a Story
What Will You Learn?
Everyone has a story to tell and everyone wears clothing that tells part of that story. Since people first started wearing clothes, there has been meaning attached to what was put on. From colors designated only for nobility to stripes for prisoners to team uniforms, fashion has been a way to bring people together and to set them apart, to make a statement or as a means of self-expression.
Today, fashion designers are not limited to fabrics in their designs. Technology has become part of our story and is much more accessible. Young designers can use tech such as lights, sensors, and microcontrollers to tell their stories.
