    October 13, 2016 by Britex Fabrics


    Join local fashion designer and Britex Fabrics guest blogger Jamie Lau for a two-hour interactive workshop on fashion design. This inspirational and creative fashion design course will introduce you to the principles of fashion design, including basic fashion drawing techniques, creating mood boards for color selection, and fabric awareness.
    Upcoming dates: Saturday, October 15th, Saturday, November 5th, and Saturday, December 3rd.
    Students will have access to croquis (fashion figure templates), colored pencils, and markers for sketching. In addition, students will also create inspirational mood boards using magazine tears, fabric swatches, and collage. This course is open to students, aspiring fashion designers, stylists, fashionistas, and seamstresses alike.

    Jamie Lau is a designer, sewing instructor, fashion writer, and native San Franciscan. A self-taught seamstress consistently inspired by her love of dresses, Jamie infuses a playful nostalgia into her work by transforming simple silhouettes into fashion forward frocks sewn from traditional Japanese prints, luxurious brocades, handwoven ikats, and her own textile designs. In addition to designing her clothing line Jamie Lau Designs, she guest blogs and teaches workshops for Britex Fabrics. Jamie is also the author of BurdaStyle Sewing Vintage Modern and is a sewing instructor at New York's Textile Arts Center. After ten plus years of living in New York, Jamie relocated her design studio to San Francisco.
