Applications for Designer Boot Camp Are Live!

Applications for Designer Boot Camp Are Live!

Have you always been interested in learning how to design and construct your own garments? Beginning in the middle of fall quarter and culminating in the annual MODA fashion show at the end of winter quarter, MODA’s Designer Boot Camp (DBC) program is designed for UChicago students who are passionate about design but who lack sewing and construction skills. These skills are taught in weekly workshops led by an associate professor of fashion design at SAIC. At the end of the program participants will have created three complete looks for the show, and learned the basics needed to continue to make great work!
