Fashion and Textile Design


The primary emphasis of this subject is to introduce students to the fundamentals of working with sustainably sourced cut and sew knit/jersey fabrications for fashion. Students produce a fashion collection that has an emphasis on sustainability, through extended use of garments.

The subject is supported by a series of relevant lectures as a means for students to advance their knowledge of the fashion industry.

With a focus on relevant and future fashion industry practices, the subject combines design and technical components and teaches students through making how to develop sustainable and contemporary design approaches, including patternmaking, constructing garment toiles, reflectivity and critique.

Students are challenged to develop original garment designs to translate into realised outcomes, including lookbooks and media appropriate to fashion.
