This is the new boundary of education: Modeschool for children
In New York - As New York City's outstanding fashion institutes, Parsons and FIT, are preparing to open their studio and counting lab to a new group of students with glowing eyes for the autumn term, a slightly different fashion academy is becoming increasingly popular. While pictures of children using children's stitching machinery have often featured synopses of sweatshops and exploitative practices, Britta B. Wheeler, founding member of the Children's Institute of Fashion Arts (The CIFA), a non-profit organisation dedicated to comprehensive arts and crafts training in children's apparel, offers a powerful and enabling presentation of such pictures.
What made you choose to open the Children's Institute of Fashion Arts? On a very fundamental plane, I sense that children are becoming more and more distant from the material and practice that make up our known universe. Stitching is an important ability that is forfeited to the ordinary people.
To know how to do a single sting is an enabling act for children. You can have some degree of oversight over what you are wearing, how you present yourself and who you are as you know how to work with fabric and the designing in. Besides, the children are burning while they' re stitching!
When I was a toddler I visited Montessori colleges and throughout my whole lifetime I experienced self-directed ways of advanced upbringing. When I was a youngster, clothes were a way to express my creativity, to be able to express who I was and to get in touch with like-minded individuals. After graduating, I went on to study fashion engineering, completed a master's degree and Ph.D. in cultural social sciences and an MA in interdisciplinary arts, then until 2015 teaching fashion engineering and social sciences at university levels.
Clothes is one of the most socially conscious ways of expressing creativity and fashion is a very elevated and specialised way of expressing it. Fashion as a discipline of the arts is one of the most vibrant, perpetual, constantly demanding and evolving expressions of creativity. We have had over 400 children with six instructors in the last few years.
Our teachers educate children from the ages of 5 to high-security. We currently work as teachers at New York City State and New York City colleges. Our out-of-school programmes are running and we conduct a number of curriculum based workshop during the class. As soon as we get enough support from governments and individual donors, we will open our own room in the Garment District of New York City.
Our aim is to develop programmes that complement the NYC Common Core curriculum, deepen it through practical coding and contextualise productions in the fields of civilization and historical development. It is also an attempt to accept the children and their own identity, as many New York boroughs are represented by different New York boroughs, each with a dominant multicultural link.
We' ve worked with a first-grader whose primary nursery is in the theatre district, and as part of their community study he invited theatre folk into the class-room, and the children produced their own music. Discussing the story of mediaeval dress, we instructed 60-year-olds how to make city dwellers' dresses for their games.
In New York City children are very demanding and know so much about mathematics and natural sciences and are very understandable. In your opinion, why is it important to tell fashion stories to young children? Because of the visibility of the medium, children need to be able to see pictures and be under pressure to be visually themselves. A lot of children want to be smart and trendy, others just want to adapt and not attract much interest.
Fashion is the story of fashion, the story of global apparel and "fashion", which is a primarily cultured term based on traditions, ethnics, religion, nature resources, science and technology. What makes stitching such an important part of the programme? There are many divisions in today's societies that can be overcome by fundamental stitching techniques and styling thinking: precision mechanics, the separation between practical study and analytical and mental study; the easy act of creating a sting and making a link between a two-dimensional cloth and a three-dimensional piece of apparel; the designing and execution of a projekt offers the easy fun of being productive and persevering, as well as the ability to learn to deal with Frustration and Lack of Attentiveness.
Children know that. Furthermore, some children tell me that they have bad thoughts. As we know, the child mortality rates among children, the first generations of children to grow up with smartphones, are higher than ever before. CIFA' s mission is to become a full-service organisation in the Garment District of New York, bringing youngsters closer to the excitement and fascination of fashion and apparel-making.
Our aim is to organize unique guest and event venues, to attract groups of schoolchildren to our area, not only to provide inspiration for prospective fashion design professionals, but also to raise the profile of the fashion world. Together with prominent figures and representatives of business, we will work to produce exhibits that address key themes of the event, among them sustainable development, links to the medias, identities and equity, as well as technologies and inventions, and the way fashion today mirrors and reacts to society's themes.
Talking to a designer, you will find that many of them knew that they wanted to make pretty clothes when they were children. Jackie Mallon is also a fashion writer, pedagogue and writer of Silk for the Feed Dogs, a novel twist on the fashion world.
