This course is an introduction to industrial knitwear. Students will research style, colour and fabrication trends to design men's or women's knitted apparel for a specific market. Knitwear terminology and mass production techniques will be analyzed as they apply to the design room. Domestic and off-shore production, the use of technology, the purchasing and inventory of raw goods will be covered. On-site lectures at manufacturing facilities will supplement the theory presented in class.
