2nd Annual Showcase Night
Featured the 2nd Annual Fashion Show
A Fantasy Themed Event
With Unique Designs created by
Visual Art Magnet Students
8th Grade Visual Arts Magnet students researched Fairy Tales from various countries in order to discover a muse for their Fantasy fashion design. For many of the designs, students deconstructed old clothing and reassembled new fabrics or materials to alter the shape and form creating an original design. Some designs were built from scratch. Critical thinking and problem solving skills were excercised on a daily basis in order to convey their theme and resolve ways to work with familiar materials in new and different ways. A few considerations: How can a garment tell a story? How can you attach metal or plastic to fabric? How can you add a new textile design to an old fabric? How will you embellish the design in order to emphasis a part of the figure?
Mythologies have existed for centuries; made by man to explain natural phenomena and to reinforce cultural values. Magnet art students created their own mythological narrative in order to purport a personal moral truth. Using their myth as inspiration, students created a costume design for the main character of their myth. Students adapted both found and store-bought materials in order to create a wearable version of their costume design. Students modeled their fashions on the runway for our Showcase Night Fashion Show.
