College Classroom Testing
The Contemporary Fashion Education program is developed in Laurel’s continuing professional education classes at two leading Philadelphia universities. Courses now include drafting, grading, and fitting.
Development is based on Laurel’s industrial experience, student requests, and Laurel’s personal sewing for herself and her family using the design room techniques she learned in the industry.
Students’ input and suggestions are invaluable. The material is rewritten so it can be better understood, then handed out the next class day. Students include design room personnel, entrepreneurs, and others who wished to sew more professionally for themselves and their families.
