Fashion Avenue

BOARD GAME DESIGN

In my senior Problem Solving class, we were asked to come up with a concept for a board game then design the board, all the pieces, and the packaging for the game. My objective for the game called "Fashion Avenue"  was to have graduating seniors majoring in Fashion Design at Parsons the New School for Design, participate in a competition. As their senior project they will be given the opportunity to design a collection, all will be featured in the senior show but the winner will get to show their collection at NYC’s Fashion Week in Bryant Park.
