This course focuses on three distinct categories of fashion accessory: footwear, handbags, and headgear/millinery. Students will examine the design and technical aspects of creating fashion accessories for complementing apparel. Form and function will be studied from a historical perspective and from contemporary design practice. Materials beyond the textiles of apparel will be investigated for accessory fabrication and construction to include leather, plastics, felts, and novelties. At the conclusion of this course, students will have a broad understanding of a wide range of fashion accessories that require specific design knowledge to direct their future studies in the fashion design program.
