In response to many requests from IUPUI students, Herron School of Art and Design is happy to offer “Fashion Design” this fall. The three credit-hour elective will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 p.m to 8:30 p.m. in room 261 of Eskenazi Hall.
Jo Dean Tipton, a fashion and textiles designer, entrepreneur and professional in the fashion industry, will instruct. Tipton has designed costumes for dance, gymnastics and cheerleading, as well as textile prints. She has taught fabric painting in a workshop
in Taos, New Mexico, and worked with textiles as a fine art medium. Tipton just completed her master’s degree Apparel Design from Ball State University. She studied as an undergraduate at the Fashion Institute of Technology and Purdue University. Most recently,
she exhibited last April in the group show Shaping Visions in the Cultural Arts Gallery in IUPUI’s Campus Center.
The course will explore design principles that are the foundation of creating marketable ideas and designs for the fashion industry. Students will learn how designs are transformed into products, apply design principles and elements to solve design problems and communicate creative concepts effectively. Students will also produce technically accurate and aesthetically pleasing designs that communicate their ideas visually, investigate and select resources to support the design and solve a given problem independently.
Enrollment is limited to the first 18 students.
