CPD Production Challenge | Wellington Campus

The challenge was to work in a team (chosen at random) and create a two-piece outfit using the skills learnt so far in the year for the Certificate in Apparel + Fashion Technology – Patternmaking

Students had to complete all their spec sheets to match garments and create an accessory with a textile element. They then had to have a mini photo shoot and present to the class discussing the garments, target market and approximate costings.

Check out some of the photos below.
