TOWAMENCIN- The Family Consumer Science department offers many opportunities for students to excel in. Of these many classes is Clothing 1 and Advanced Clothing, both in which the students get to be involved in the fashion show. The Clothing 1 curriculum covers color, clothing trends, fabric, figure types, wardrobe planning, and more. If one is interested in pursuing a career in fashion, Advanced Clothing is the class for them. Though the class is more rigorous than Clothing, it is a great opportunity for students, as they will study costume history, fashion cycles, and merchandising.To take Advanced Clothing you have to complete Clothing 1.

“This class is great for students who want to be more creative and explore the field of design and merchandising, students will be able to show their skills with 3 of our different sewing projects, we will also dive into the history of fashion and how trends evolve,” explained Mrs. townsend.

As Family Consumer Science (FCS) career study students, seniors Bri Phelps and Lily Yoder spend nearly 3 periods a day in a classroom learning new material and helping students.Lily Yoder, senior at North Penn joined career study to better herself in her dream career and help her develop more skills in fashion.

“I want to go into the fashion industry, so doing this program gives me a head start and helps me develop skills to take with me to college and into my career, i really wanted to join the program because i knew the career study students are in charge of the fashion show, one of the FCS’s biggest event of the year and in doing this it really can help me develop a better sense of responsibility and leadership which i’ll need in later life,” shared Yoder.

“I would definitely recommend it, it’s so much fun and has helped me so much with my direction of my career,” said Yoder.

Taking this class is a great way to better ones sewing skills and help one get more involved in school activity, like the fashion show.

“I joined career study to help me better my skills in the career in which I wanna go in, which is interior design, this program has helped me become more creative and organized and has influenced me to push myself to try harder tasks since I have more time to work on it, on a normal day I help the students sew and understand directions better, and also I help organize the fashion show, my favorite part of the year,” said Phelps.

Phelps and Yoder are just a few of the many students who have thrived in North Penn’s FCS programs. Both the career study students hope that students take advantage of the opportunities that the department has to offer.

 

“I would totally recommend for students to do this program because you get to be so involved and have more time to work on your projects and get to really learn from your teacher,” said Phelps.
