FD335 - History of Costume
This class is designed to introduce the student to the evolution of western costume and decoration from antiquity to the 20th century. We will examine basic costume silhouettes, innovations and differences in masculine and feminine dress, fabrics, accessories and furniture from each period. This will be achieved through a series of lectures, slides, readings, projects and field trips. Social, political, economic and geographic influences on design will be discussed. Students will be able to understand the interrelation between the arts and fashion. As the semester progresses, each student will be able to identify and describe various historical sources that are intrinsic to modern day fashion. Based on the scope of a student's project or level of study there may be additional costs for materials and supplies. Satisfies: Major Requirement
