What do you feel when someone gives you flowers?  What do you feel when you give someone flowers?

bouquet10.jpgRoses represents the never ending feeling of love and passion.  Aphordite, the Greek goddess of love, presented a rose to Eros, the god of love.  Roses can convey various sentiments, according to number and colour.  This flower rules the world of beautiful flowers with diversified effective usage in differnet situations of life.

Red is the colour of love and passion.  Sometimes this may also indicate a stronger feeling of desire, courage and strength. Most lovers enjoy sending bouquet of red roses because of its beauty filled with energy and power. 

The meaning of flowers in your floral arrangement and understanding flower colours forms an interesting part of the FLOWER ARRANGING WORKSHOP, which is presented at NWSD Klerksdorp Campus on Saturday 22 May, then again at NWSD Mafikeng Campus, on Saturday 16 October.  For more info, please reply to this email.


Why the re-birth of the corset has now become a fashion must-have!

corsets 3.jpg  Corsets have been worn by both men and women for hundreds of years.  Shapes and construction techniques have varied form fashion era to era.  Today the spape and construction techniques vary from designer to designer. 

The CORSET DESIGNING COURSE, presented at NWSD Klerksdorp Campus, will teach you all the various 'tricks of the trade' used by designers today.  We will also investigate the ancient techniques, comparing this to the modern way of doing this.  Corsets can create illusions of body shapes, (create cleveage, flatten the breast &/or stomach, reduce the waist size) and these shaping techniques will also be part of the course. 

This course is presented over one week, mornings only, 9h00 to 13h30, from 21 June to 25 June.


What's with the Ottoman Empire?

axis-ottoman-bella-glamour.jpgThe word Ottoman, being a footstool is widely believed to have come about in the late 18th century when Egypt, then a part of the Ottoman Empire, was invaded by the French. This invasion included punishment to include "pain walks" (loosely translated) - because of these walks Ottomans soon thereafter fashioned footstools to rest their tired extremities. These footstools later became widely popular in Europe and the term 'Ottoman' was coined to give tribute to the furniture's origin.

You can learn to make your own Ottoman (or headboard) at NWSD!. The UPHOLSTERY WORKSHOP will be presented at the Klerksdorp Campus on Saturday 17 July, and then at the Mafikeng Campus on 11 September. 

If money is the root of evil, then FASHION MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND!

 Fashion design has varied over time and place. Fashion designers work in a number of ways in designing clothing and accessories. Some work alone or as part of a team. They attempt to satisfy consumer desire for aesthetically designed clothing; and, because of the time required to bring a garment onto the market, must at times anticipate changing consumer tastes. Some designers in fact have a reputation which enables them to set fashion trends.  Some clothes are made specifically for an individual, as in the case of haute couture, or off-the-rack. Today, most clothing is designed for the mass market, especially casual and every-day wear.

At NWSD, the FULLTIME FASHION COURSE, covers clothing design for the individual as well as for the mass market.  The registrations for this course are now open, as the next intake for classes start on 12 July!
