6cp; intensive

Global studio: Florence


This subject presents students with an opportunity to study abroad and enhance their awareness of fashion and textiles within a broader cultural context. This travel experience allows students to comprehend global and cultural contexts for fashion and understand their relevance within the site-specific context of Florence, Italy. The project enriches students' understanding of creative, industrial and cultural issues for fashion, and students are inspired by Florence's history, industry and position in the global fashion context. Learning may include but is not limited to independent and self-directed activity framed by a structured program of studio-based tutorials/workshops alongside site visits and exposure to industry in Florence. Students are expected to fulfil assessment requirements that include presentations, research and design outcomes. Students require approval from the fashion and textiles course director to enrol in this subject.
