Storytelling for Fashion Designers
Thursday, February 28, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
Do you need a good story to tell for your website or press kit? An amazing anecdote to incorporate into a fundraising pitch? Are you looking to find inspiration for you next collection?
In this fun, two hour-long workshop, I’ll take designers through the storytelling process with an eye towards functionality. Through a series of improvisation, writing, and pitching exercises, students will have the opportunity to workshop individual stories to take back to the sketchbook or the showroom.
By the end of the workshop, designers will have at least two personal stories to incorporate into their marketing materials, plus an understanding of how to harness the creative power of storytelling in everyday life.
