This subject encourages students to further investigate fashion practice through design investigation while integrating individual research into studio activities. A lecture series provides an overview of the relationship between cultural innovation and the fashioned body in relation to a number of historical and contemporary fashion cultures. This subject addresses sustainable fashion practice and future fashion practice. Design studios provide a practical context for the exploration of fashion practice in relation to alternative garment-making methodologies, creative process, process documentation, reflective practice and image-making. This subject also encompasses a collaborative project called TEAM UPS, where students have the opportunity to work with an honours student in the development of their Major Project: Fashion Collection. The subject culminates in the creation of an original fashion design project enabling the student to position fashion design practice as a form of cultural research.
