MORNING PROGRAM 10:30 - NOON: ART TO WEAR FOR ALL OCCASIONS - NICK COMAN
What is "Art to Wear" and is it appropriate for all occasions? Absolutely! This lecture centers around the current "Art to Wear" scene, and through lecture, slide and actual garments, we will discuss the do's and don'ts of ATW in social situations, and how things have changed over the years with the steady rise of "disposable clothing". Nick is a FIDM graduate.
AFTERNOON PROGRAM DIANE RICKS STUDENTS FASHION SHOW
Diane Ricks Student Fashion Show: This is a not-to-be-missed event. Come and invest your time ohhing and ahhing at the marvelous wearables the students have concocted after Diane inspires them to even greater powers of creation. Diane Ricks is a popular and creative teacher filled with a repertoire of skills teaching silk screening, dye and paint methods, and variety of sewing techniques. Her students will present their works of art in this free style fashion show. Feast your eyes on the vibrant colors and varied textures of the luxurious garments.
THIS MONTHS WORKSHOP: FEB. 19 & 20 (2 DAY)
NICK COMAN ART TO WEAR FROM THE BOTTOM UP
How many of us make amazing tops, vests, tunics, jackets and just to slap on a pair of jeans or black pants because that's all we have? Wouldn't it be nice to actually have an entire outfit, something that looks and feels cohesive? In this two-day workshop, you will have the opportunity to produce a custom pattern for a pair of pants that fit. Then we will take that pattern and alter it into a number of different styles, with details that will reflect back on you as an artist. We will talk about and actually create patterns for "Bifurcated Garments" that take your unique sense of style from your head all the way to your ankles (shoes are not included but they will be discussed!)
WORKSHOP LOCATION: Pasadena
COST PER DAY: $60 for members, $70 for non-members
