Junior studio is a class taken in the spring semester of Fashion Design students’ junior year at Thomas Jefferson University. Students in this class use the skills they have developed in all of their other fashion design classes in order to create original concepts, fabric direction, and a 10 look collection backed by heavy research. In addition to preparing students for Collection Capstone classes taken during their senior year, this class also serves to educate students on fit and tailoring standards.
Taylor looked to the natural occurrence of bio-luminescence as inspiration for her Junior Studio collection. Bright shades of blue, green, and purple mimic the shimmering glow of the phenomenon, while soft drapes feel fluid and easy to wear.
