In this subject students explore experimental fashion practice as it relates to contemporary womenswear. The subject is supported by a series of guest industry and academic interactive lectures. The lecture series introduces students to historical, conceptual, and contemporary fashion practice and the relationship of fashion to art and the body. Specialised studio workshops and design tutorials offer both face-to-face and group discussion in which students explore contemporary ideas and design methodologies. Through a series of workshops in explorative drape techniques, students investigate a sculptural approach to garment formation and generate ideas for womenswear range outcomes. This subject encourages students to challenge and extend contemporary fashion practice, expressed in the production of garment outcomes and design of a womenswear collection.
