Making it in the Fashion World: Home

A fashion designer research project created for Mrs. Hoppe's Fashion Design course at Platteville High School.

Project Introduction

Fashion Designers create new ideas for garments and accessories.  They try to design functional and beautiful items that will be at the leading edge of fashion when they are produced.

For this assignment, students will research one well-known fashion designer.  Using the information found, students will then prepare a written report and bibliography.
