[International Total Fashion College] Cooperation with Niigata City “Niigata 2km”. Exhibition of student-made costumes on Higashi Odori
At the NSG Group Educational Foundation Kokusai Sogo Gakuen
International Total Fashion College (hereafter referred to as “this school”, Niigata City, Niigata Prefecture, school principal: Ichiro Tsuchida), fashion design was used to decorate the “Niigata 2 Kilometers” sponsored by Niigata City’s urban policy. From October 1st to October 31st, the 3rd year students, the fashion specialist course, the 1st year fashion business course, and the 1st year total fashion course will cooperate.
“Niigata 2 Kilometers (Nikiro)” is an urban axis that connects Niigata Station to Bandai and Furumachi, and is held with the desire to make citizens feel more familiar with Niigata’s urban development and connect it to a sense of excitement and anticipation. This is a plan. The goal is to pass on the baton of “Niigata where the next generation can have hope” and work on creating a town where people can feel “like” and “fun”.
In order to cooperate with this event, from October 1st to October 17th, we are exhibiting costumes made by students in the window of the Hokuetsu Daiichi Building, which is about a 3-minute walk from Niigata Station. The fashion design department, which created the costumes for the exhibition, is a department where students learn the basics and applications of clothing making over a three-year period.
Similarly, in the fashion major, students who have completed the courses of their choice at the time of admission pursue further specialization in fashion and actively participate in contests, etc., aiming for greater heights. From October 18th to October 31st, a Halloween-inspired display will be created and decorated in the same window. The fashion business department that I am involved in is a department where you mainly learn buying and VMD (visual
merchandising), store management and fashion business in general. In the Total Fashion Course, students study fashion business for two years, fashion design for two years, and acquire a wide range of knowledge and skills related to fashion in four years.
As a school based in Furumachi, we would like to actively participate in the regional revitalization of Niigata City.
