Requisite(s): 83821 Fashion and Textiles Major Studio 1



In this subject, students explore experimental fashion practice that engages with contemporary issues in society. The subject is supported by a series of lectures, specialised studio workshops and design tutorials. The subject introduces students to designing beyond vision, through Sensory Design approaches that challenge the hegemony of the visual in fashion. Through engaging with experiential research and practice which aims to activate the senses, students reframe fashion systems through systemic analysis and re-visioning. The subject engages students with material experimentation that aims to amplify or inhibit a range of sensory responses. Students are encouraged to define their own project outcomes, across fashion, textiles and systems change.
