Sketch Selection: Zaid Affas

This Wednesday a senior class in fashion design presented their sketches to designer Zaid Affas. He had given them a direction to create a collection for a modern, chic woman in a major world class city whose lifestyle requires a strong wardrobe for work, travel, and special events.

In his guidelines, Affas recommended certain colors, such as metal, sand, and coal, as well as suggestions for construction, shapes, and fabrics. Overall, the students had to keep in mind that their customer needs clothing “that demands respect and admiration yet [while] maintaining her femininity,” according to the designer’s direction. Teams of students will work on the construction of the selected designs during the rest of the semester.
