More details

Knit is regarded as one of the most creative products in fashion as the designer is responsible for creating both the fabric and the garment design from a single yarn. Knit gives you endless possibilities for shape, colour, texture and special effects.

Sarah Gresty is the Course Leader for Fashion at CSM. Previously she was Fashion Knit Pathway Leader at CSM and has worked extensively as a knitwear design consultant. Sarah has worked on collections for Versace, Karl Lagerfeld, Chloe, Chanel, Kenzo, Lacroix and Balenciaga, amongst others.

The day will start with a talk about Sarah's career and the design houses that she has contributed to as a consultant. There we will be a Q&A during which you can ask Sarah about her current role and knitwear consultancy work. You will then explore vintage knitwear and produce a flat drawing for a knit piece. There will be yarns and swatches available for you to handle. 

The afternoon session will involve a live model wearing knitwear and will focus on producing 6 fashion knitwear illustrations using mixed media techniques. These can form part of a portfolio or simply be artworks for you to enjoy.
