How To Make On-Point Fashion Pieces By Printing Your Own Fabric Designs

How To Print Your Own Fabric To Make Fashion

The fact you’re here probably means you feel a budding fashionista deep within your heart. I’ve loved fashion, I’ve worked in and around fashion, but imagine being able to be your own designer?

And why not? Seeing as the TAFE NSW Fashion Design Studio (FDS) at Ultimo in Sydney has the second highest ranking in Australia, and is top 20 in the world, according to Fashionista in 2017. So then it’s no surprise that fashion heavyweights like Akira Isogawa, Nicky Zimmermann, Alex Perry and Dion Lee all walked these same halls.

The coolest part? They have state-of-the-art dye printers which students can use to create their own fabrics. Ummm, so chic. We sat down with the school’s Teacher of Print Design, Seaneen Kelly, so she could walk us through the process of turning hand-drawn sketches into IRL fabrics for totally fab fashion pieces.

Think you’re ready to join the fashion elite? Take your creative flair and killer design skills to the next level with a fashion design course available at TAFE NSW.
