Abstract

Character analysis in theatrical costume design provides a unique opportunity to practice in-depth examination of a person’s life: psychological status, obstacles, life satisfaction, relationships, and so on. In an effort to nurture a rich imagination in our students toward customers’ needs while engaging in a creative design process, a special topics course titled “Theatrical Costume Design” was developed for a collaborative theatrical production between two departments at our school: Fashion Design & Retailing and Communication Arts. This interdisciplinary course explored the process of theatrical costume design with focus on character analysis.
