Fashion and Textile Design


The primary emphasis of this subject is to introduce students to the fundamentals of working with stretch and knitted fabrications for fashion. Students produce a fashion collection and accessory that has an emphasis on activewear finishes and utilises knit and stretch fabrications. With a focus on emulating relevant industry engagements, the subject combines design and technical components, and teaches students through making how to develop design approaches that signal 'active' garment categories for a fashion context, including advanced patternmaking, constructing garment toiles, body fitting techniques and critiquing final garment design.

The subject is supported by a series of lectures as a means for students to advance their knowledge and provide research pathways. Students are challenged to develop original garment designs to translate into realised outcomes, including lookbooks and media appropriate to the fashion industry.
