Words of Wisdom from the Seniors October 30, 2009Posted by SCAD Fashion Department in : SCAD, Sewing and Workroom Supplies , trackback
The world is full of people who love to give advice – especially fashion advice. Some of its is good. Some of it is baaaaaad and leads us to do really stupid things – like wearing a baseball cap sideways or wearing sunglasses indoors in order to look more cool.
On occasion, though, some very helpful advice comes around that should get your attention. This time, it comes from SCAD students who have been through the intense process of creating their Senior Collection.
So here they are (in no particular order) . . . fifteen bits of wisdom from the Seniors in Professor Kim Irwin’s class:
1. Don’t buy cheap muslin
2. Make sure that the fabric used for your muslin is as similar as possible to your final.
3. Stretch your knits overnight before trying to sew them (hang on the wall).
4. Be ready to spend money.
5. SC is not an excuse not to complete your other assignments (other professors don’t like that)
6. Learn to love Hub food because it is probably the only meal you will eat all day.
7. You have to do your work or you will fail.
8. Don’t wait until the night before to do your process book.
9. Just get your swatches, there is no point in fighting.
10. Be prepared to make your models very uncomfortable.
11. Leave hygiene products in your car, you will be here all night.
12. This is not a John Cusack movie, people want to see your progress.
13. Stock up on tape
14. Wear headphones!
15. No cliche fashion movies shown in the work room.
