Mannequin Madness

My students need a mannequin form and books.

My Students

Imagine being able to design your own unique clothing.

My students are fun, creative, and artistic fashionistas.

They love to dress up with bright unique clothing. Many of them have expressed an interest in making their own clothing designs that actually "fit". They have complained about not being able to find the clothes they like in a size that fits properly.

My Project

My students will use the fashion books and the mannequin forms to learn how to design their own clothing. We will be able to use our new sewing machine to assemble our original designs, in hopes of organizing our own school fashion show to exhibit our works.

My project will help young girls and boys aspiring to become fashion designers to get an essence of what it is like to be a fashion designer.

It will also help build their self-esteem and motivate them to continue to pursue their fashion career.
