International Total Fashion College (hereinafter referred to as “our university”, Niigata City, Niigata Prefecture, principal: Ichiro Tsuchida), an original brand planned by students in the third year of the fashion design department and the first year of the fashion major A sales event will be held for a limited time from November 2nd (Wednesday) to 8th (Tuesday) for “YUTORI” products on the 2nd floor New York Runway of Niigata Mitsukoshi Isetan.
This event is an industry-academia collaboration class that will be held for the 8th time this year. This will be done in cooperation with the company Sankumir and Niigata Mitsukoshi Isetan.
It took about a year, starting with the presentation of the brand concept, deciding on the brand name, and 11 students narrowing down the design of more than 300 types to 11 fabric items and 5 knit items, and repeated meetings with companies. We have created an ideal product.
On October 7th (Friday), a style look was filmed with model Shiina Otsuka, and on October 26th, a role-play for sales was held. It will be delivered on Tuesday, November 1, and preparations will be made to set up the sales floor. During the sales period from November 2nd, the students who actually designed the products will stand at the storefront, tell general customers about the goodness of the products themselves, and sell them.
It is a very practical course that allows you to experience the industry trends in total by going through the process of creating a brand from scratch and going directly to customers.
In the first year, students learn the basics of design, patterns, and sewing in the Department of Fashion Design at our university. In the 3rd year, we will deepen the ideas and concepts for the selection of design drawings, thoroughly implement countermeasures such as approach theory to design in class, and participate in major domestic contests. Award-winning.
Although it is a short period of one week, please visit Niigata Mitsukoshi Isetan and see the daily achievements of the students. *Fuhaku: Fabrics woven with cotton threads and fabrics woven with silk threads [Image 3
