This subject gives students the opportunity to explore fashion within an international context and focuses on design, making and presentation of original menswear. A lecture series explores contemporary and historical contexts of male culture, in relation to men's style and the performance and presentation of masculine identity. A brief enables students to challenge their own aesthetic bias by working with an existing design signature, utilising research, technical and conceptual skills to produce a significant body of creative work. This subject brings together a strong industry focus set around range development and the presentation of contemporary menswear. Students are provided an opportunity to consider alternate modes of presenting menswear proposals. These revolve around 2D image making and publication or the presentation of the menswear within spatial and performative contexts.
