Overview

Our bodies are as unique as we are, so don’t we all deserve to dress ourselves in clothes which fit us, suit us, made by us, just for us, in our own unique way. 

The global fashion industry is producing millions of clothes, which don’t always fit us correctly, and end up in landfills, polluting the environment. Isn’t it about time we all acted to improve our planet, in buying less mass-produced cheap clothing, and purchase clothes which are sustainably made, made to last, and fit our body shapes.

The Fashion Design and Creation from edX in collaboration with The Hong Kong Polytechnic University - HKPolyUx  teach you the art of made to measure for lower body garments, learning how garments should actually fit our individual body shapes, for men and women, providing you will the skills to be able to create the perfect fit, and style, for any person, man, woman or child. 

Whether your body is pear shape, plus size, apple body shape, or you have a defined waist, this course will teach you how to make clothes to fit your wonderful curves and body shape. Once you gain the understanding of how to create the pattern blocks from measurements you can repeat the process for any person, man, woman or child, you will be able to create the perfect fit for their individual height and body shape.

Verified learners will have access to the Fashion Design and Creation books, which show 20 different skirt designs, 20 trousers for women, and 20 trousers for men. These books show the plan, pattern, graded specification and construction information, to inspire you in how to create different fashion styles. The twenty styles have been specifically selected to give you a broad knowledge of construction of specific styles. For skirts, different pleats, gathers, godets, lengths and widths, have been developed to show a wide variety of designs. 

Trousers covers how to make jeans, casual trousers like cargo pants, dance pants, jogging bottoms, using different patch pockets, seaming details and different fly front constructions. The tailored trousers show how to sew lining into trousers and construct the jet and welt tailored pockets. Each of the twenty designs are different, which can be used as inspiration to adapt and develop to create your own unique style, using your own choice of fabrics.

With an understanding of how clothes should fit you, and the experience you will gain by completing the Professional Certificate, you will have the knowledge and skills to adjust and adapt your whole wardrobe, recycling and up cycling, and making something new! With labour and love for fashion, you can look unique, and wear your new made to measure clothes to express yourself, confident and proud.

These two courses will prepare you for a career within the fashion industry. Working in the field of designing you could enter a position as a junior designer and develop your skills to senior designer level. With the technical knowledge you will gain you could work within the garment technology field, as a pattern cutter, sample machinist or fit technologist, working on the fit of clothing ready for mass production.
