Does remaking and redesigning the fashion industry as we know it spark your creative flare, then why not come along to this 5-day show stopper course to learn from the globally recognised Sustainability designer Patrick McDowell. Over one-week Patrick will take you through a creative course showing you the steps to take from research, draping and designing from pre-existing clothing and limited quantities of fabrics. Patrick has worked with Burberry studio scraps, to globally released reimagine collections to bespoke creations from vintage fabrics and so no task big or small can phase him. If you want to learn about the future of fashion in a hands-on environment with tangible physical outcomes that go hand in hand with big sky thinking then come on down and find out how Patrick is rethinking the role of a fashion designer today.
