The Fashion Business Program usually organized a workshop session during the open house
For this semester, the program upgraded the workshop and collaborated with the Private Label Development class, a class offered to the level 4 students of the Fashion Business Program. Fashion Business Students enroll in this Private Label Development class are expected to develop concept after learned about fashion history on their previous semester. They will learn on how to evaluate the feasibility of the brand, define the concepts, and develop sample. For this workshop, the project from the Private Label Development class was presented in a trunk show by 6 professional models and supported by Fashion Disc Jockey and Fashion Choreographer.
Before the trunk show started, the Fashion Business Program organized a two-hour workshop of developing ideas and concepts. The workshop started with the presentation of the program by the Fashion Business Program Director, Mr. Richard Kaunang and assisted by the Full Time Teacher, Ms. Sheilaya Cempaka Pansatya. Mr. Richard told the participants about the program, its objectives, strengths and opportunities, as well as the learning activities and lecturers competencies. Not only he explained the possibility of work placement during and after the students internship, but he also talked about the different kinds of learning methods, such as project presentation, field trips, guest speakers by industrial experts, and the integrated activities from the fashion enterprise projects, such as fashion shows and bazaars.
Then the workshop continued by Mr. Ichwan Thoha, the lecturer of Private Label Development and Fashion and Society classes. He explained the basic component of fashion by discussing about the importance of knowing the shape of human body before a cloth being made. He discussed the different kinds of human shape, collar, tops, bottoms, and introduction to color theory.
The participants were being given tracing paper, a sketch of a shirt, pencil and eraser, and later on being asked to trace the sketch into the tracing paper. Then, he asked them to develop a new concept based on the sketch by adding some elements, such as pockets, tail, etc. Then another tracing paper was given, but this time Mr. Ichwan asked the participants to work on balloon, empire, ruffles, and inverted pleats sleeves. These activities are usually given to the students of Private Label Development of the Fashion Business Program during their first few weeks. The ideas are to encourage them to think outside of the box and work on something new inspired by classic elements. Then usually students will look for fabrics, choose the color, create a sample garment and follow-up the feedback received from the teacher until their final garment can be approved.
On the afternoon, all participants from all programs were invited to see the trunk show by the Fashion Business Students. The show itself was inspired from Charlie Chaplin and twisted into two sequences: Sporty Look and Classy Style. There were 10 looks for men and women, consist of tail coat, jumper, long-and-loose t-shirt, jacket with hoodie, cullote, and many more. Colors are inspired from the movie in 1940s with dominant black, white, grey and silver. The pale make-up and small mustache strengthened the look of this collection. Meanwhile, various prints such as houndstooth, polka-dot and stripes plus accessories such as bowler hat, monocle, gloves and veil plus popsticks and umbrella gave extra feelings for this collection.
