Fashion and Textile Design

Description

This subject builds on the speculative design strategies that students developed in first year into practical and material realisation of a personal design philosophy for a fashion collection. Students explore a making methodology that incorporates the interaction from 2D flat pattern-making to 3D making strategies. The subject provides students with enhanced fluency and practical skills: key to design process for fashion. These explorations inform a final four look collection from which students realise two finished fashion looks. Alongside this students create a Lookbook which provides a visual fashion context within which these two looks reside. Design studios provide a practical context to examine the possibilities of designing on the stand supported by technical construction studios which further support students' ability to develop, apply and mobilise pattern-making and sewing skills learned in first year. The project work is contextualised within contemporary design strategies and case studies of design which focus on cut-based shape exploration for fashion. The subject presents students with practical design strategies and their application in the broader global fashion context, with industry-engaged lectures and in-studio presentations.
