The participants of the Street Styles/Dream Seam Fashion School program are busy designing and finishing garments that will be showcased in this year's fashion photo shoot and magazine. These aspiring designers are part of an Oakland-based program that teaches fashion history, business and development. They learn the history of textiles and weaving and eventually work towards creating garments.
Kristi Holohan, director of the program, says learning how to sew and construct clothes gives participants motor and critical skills that help them succeed in life. In addition, students gain confidence after completing their projects and are able to sell garments at Rock, Paper, Scissors boutique.
