What Will You Learn?

Now it is time to get 3 dimensional and make a fashion tech piece to wear! Design and make some kind of headwear that tells a story. The only rule you have to follow is that it has to have a circuit that lights up somewhere on it to enhance your story.

Headwear can include hats, headbands, scarves, wigs, or anything else that is worn on the head.

Remind students that the elements of fashion design still apply, even in headwear! The head croquis and Design Notes can be used to ideate.

Victoria

My brother is a musician, so I wanted to make him a hat that showed this part of his personality.

Victoria

I believe you can be creative with whatever you have around, so I used scratch paper and fingernail polish to create this giant bow.

Isabella

I am a feathers, flowers and sparkles kind of girl, but that doesn't mean I am not strong too. The lights represent how my brain lights up when I get to be creative.
