The lecture series introduces students to conceptual fashion practice and the relationship of fashion to art and the body. 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 womens collection.
