Iris was woken up by her alarm clock. She leaned over and turned off the alarm and then sat up. She rubbed her face and let out a yawn. It was Monday morning and the first day of classes. She climbed out bed and got ready for the day. Once she got dressed, Iris left her room and went to her kitchen. She lived in a one bedroom apartment which was near her school's campus. Iris made herself some breakfast.

After Iris was finishing eating, she grabbed her messager bag and headed out the door. She lived about 10 minutes away from campus. Iris glanced at her watch as she walked. Her first class Designs II was at 9:00 am. She was looking forward to it despite the instructor. Last spring she signed up for fall classes late due to forgetting about her sign up time. So she ended getting Gabriel Agreste as her instructor. She heard from other students that Mr. Agreste was strict and highly critical. He even made some students drop his class. He received the nickname Mr. Cold Heart. Iris smiled to herself and told herself that everything will be alright. She will survive!

Iris arrived on campus and walked into the building where her class was being held. When she entered the building, Iris walked up to the second floor. She found her class in no time and found the classroom empty. She tend to be early sometimes. Iris decided to be bold and take a seat in the front row. She wasn't going to let Mr. Agreste's reputation frighten her.

Gabriel glanced at his watch before taking a sip of his coffee. He had twenty minutes before class, and he would use every minute of it to relax. Teaching was not a passion, after all. It was merely a means to get himself into the fashion industry until he could find a real design job. So, he saw no need to get into the classroom too early at the beginning of the semester.

His eyes skimmed his class list, looking for any notable names. It was well-known he was harsh with critique, and he always took pleasure in putting those who thought name alone was enough to pass in their place. Usually they thought just growing up in the fashion industry made them better than other students, and typically they were wrong. Children of famous designers were often uninspired and highly derivative of their parents, even if they didn't realize it.

His eyes landed and stuck on the name for a few minutes. Iris Desjardins, the daughter of a very famous fashion designer whose company had turned him down back when he first started looking for jobs. He mentally added her to the list of students to test before standing and getting his stuff together. He had ten minutes to get to class.

He walked into the classroom and noticed a few students were there early.  The most intriguing was the girl in the front row. Most students knew his reputation and avoided the front.  Either this girl was very bold or very naive. 

He walked past the students to the front of the room and sat at his desk without a word, waiting for the rest of the students to filter in so he could begin.

Iris was doodling in her sketch book. More students were filtering in. She studied some of them. They didn't look thrilled to be here. Either because it was a morning class or because of the instructor. Speak of the devil. Mr. Agreste walked in. She watched him closely. Iris chuckled to herself. He was quite handsome! She went back to her doodles. He didn't look mean, but she wasn't going to let her guard down.

Gabriel glanced at his watch (he took the clock down so students couldn't glance at it during class) and watched the second hand slowly make its way up the the twelve.  He stood promptly on the hour and took his first real look at his students.  Most of the ones in the front looked like they wanted to hit themselves for coming in late enough to be forced to sit there.

His eyes fell on the girl, who he now recognized as Iris Desjardins.  She was doodling and probably hadn't noticed him get up.  He cleared his throat to get her attention before looking back to the class.

"Good morning.  Anyone who is not here for Designs II should get up and find your proper classroom."  He paused just in case there really was someone who didn't realize where they were and continued once no one moved.  

"I am your professor.  You will refer to me either as Mr. Agreste or Professor Agreste." He took a few steps toward his desk and grabbed a stack of syllabuses and a sign in sheet that he placed at the corner of the front row.  The student quickly grabbed one and passed the stack on to the next person.

"I'm sure most of you have heard of my reputation as a professor, and I will tell you right now that it is completely true.  I will be the most critical professor you ever meet.  I am not here to be your friend.  I am here to help you develop your knowledge of design in a way that might help you enter and succeed in the highly competitive fashion industry.

Some of you," his eyes floated to each student related to a head fashion designer, "may think you already know about fashion.  That you grew up learning and understanding exactly how the industry works.  I'm going to tell you now that you're wrong, and this class will probably be a reality check. You can only get so far on your relative's knowledge."

He scanned the room for the stack of syllabuses and was satisfied when he saw them reach the last table.  "Anyway, the goal of this class is to take the skills you learned from Designs I and bring them into the real world.  Each week you will be assigned a type of garment or outfit that you will design on Monday and create during the rest of the week.  Assignments are due at the beginning of class on Monday no exceptions other than illness or death in the family.  You will have access to the classroom on the weekends to finish if needed.  You just have to call security to let you in the building. If your assignment is incomplete, your score will be docked the percentage that they are incomplete.  We will also spend half of Monday critiquing the previous week's designs."

He walked back in forth at the front of the classroom, watching to see who was paying attention. "You will have access to all of the current fashion magazines. It's important to stay on top of the trends while still creating your own thing. You will be graded on technique, craftsmanship, originality, and practicality. You can use designs you've created for previous classes, but know you might have to tweak them if they're not on par with the level you should be at."

He stopped walking in the middle of the front of the room and looked at his class again. "Your final project will be to remake three of your worse designs, whether they be from this class or another, using everything you learn in this class.  Now, are there any questions?"

Iris looked up from sketchpad, when Mr. Agreste started to talk. She placed her pencil down and he had her attention. So he confirmed his own reputation. Great. Well Iris wasn't going to let him intimidate her. She was determined to walk away from this class with an A. She held back a laugh, when he brought others like her. He was right. Most rich kids ended up taking over their family's business regardless of their interests. So it was good for them to get a reality check. Not her. She had no interest in working in the fashion industry. She wanted to run her own little shop that sold her own clothes. The kid sitting next to her handed her the sign in sheet and then the stack of syllabuses. Iris signed herself in and grabbed herself a copy of the syllabus. She then passed along the papers to person take to her. 

She leaned back into her chairs and crossed her arms against her chest. To be honest this class seem simple. The difficult part was getting his approval. Iris couldn't help, but smirk. Challenge accepted. She was going to blow his mind away with her designs. 

No one said anything when he asked for questions. Some were either too tired to care or were intimidated by him. Iris just grabbed the syllabus and started to look through it.

Gabriel scanned the room as he asked for questions, his eyes falling on Iris for a moment. He couldn't help but notice the determined spark in her eyes that was so different from every other student in the room.  Normally, the students who had parents or relatives in the industry would look like their confidence was crumbling by his mere mention that they were wrong, but she seemed to be inspired by it.  It was the first time he'd seen such a spark since his first year teaching (when no one knew what kind of professor he was).

He quickly looked away, hoping she hadn't noticed and focused on the entire class again. "Well, since no one has any questions, we're going to dive right in. For the first assignment, I want you to design any type of outfit you want. I want to get a sense of your individual styles. I will walk around and give input while you work.  Go ahead and start designing."

Iris opened her sketchpad and grabbed her pencil. She tapped the end of the pencil on her cheek as she thought about wanted she want an outfit. Well she loved to wear dresses! Especially in the summer so she sketched a dress with a sunflower pattern. She loved flowers and sunflowers were her favorite. As she worked on it she frowned. The pattern was over powering the dress so she crossed it out and started on a new one. This time instead there was one big sunflower on side of the hip of the dress.

Gabriel sat down at his desk and started sketching his own designs. The nice thing about this class was the amount of time he had to put towards his designs while the students thought of their designs.  He gave them about fifteen minutes to get some sketches down before putting his sketchbook in his desk drawer standing up to check on how they were doing.

He walked around the room giving small comments about tweaking necklines or patterns among other things. Some of the students gave him annoyed looks before grudgingly heeding his advice. He doubted any of these students wanted to take his help seriously.  Well, they'd learn soon enough.

Finally, he circled back to the front of the room and did a closer look at the students in the front row. He paused when he got to Iris, noticing she had crossed out one design already. He nodded to himself, slightly impressed. It wasn't often he had a student understand their design was failing before he gave advice. He wondered if she'd actually made the effort to learn things from sources other than her father.

All of the sudden Iris felt like someone was watching her. She turned her head and saw Mr. Agreste standing there. She briefly stared at him for a moment. For some reason his eyes were pulling her in and she started to feel flustered. Iris quickly shook that feeling off. She just smiled at him and pointed to her design. "What do you think? Better the other one?" she pointed to her crossed out sketch.

Gabriel raised an eyebrow. She was actually asking a decent question? He looked over the designs a little closer, taking in each detail before answering. "You made a good decision to scrap that one. Sometimes simple is the best choice when it comes to patterns. It looks pretty good overall."

Iris's eyes lit up. "You really think so? Thank you. I love simple designs. Sometimes I feel like people go too crazy with patterns. They don't seem understand that too much can be blindly. Like those matching shirt and pants patterns." She slightly gasped and turned slightly pink. "Sorry I'm rambling.."

Gabriel shook his head. "No need to apologize. You're here to learn about fashion, so it's good for you to know what you want for your style. I agree too much pattern can be a bad thing and, as I said, simple designs can be better.  You just have to remember that you also have to be careful with simplicity. Plenty of designers have created wonderfully simple designs that look both nice and unique, but simplicity can also create something bland and generic. You're doing well with it so far."

Iris nodded her head. "Of course. You just need to find the right balance sometimes." She smiled at him again. So Mr. Agreste could be nice. Maybe there was more to him. For some reason this peaked her interest. "Any other suggestions?"

Gabriel thought for a moment before shaking his head.  "You seem to have a good idea of what you want to do so far.  I'll come back around before the end of class to review and give any other critiques." 

With that, he headed back to his desk and sat down to return to his sketchbook. His conversation with Iris had been strangely positive compared to how he usually dealt with his students; especially students related to fashion designers. Probably because she actually seemed to have an idea of what she was doing. Still, he had a duty to be as critical with his students as possible. He'd have to find something wrong with her work eventually.
