The major project allows students to fully demonstrate their professional ability and accumulated knowledge from previous years' study, through the execution of a personally prepared design brief completed earlier in the year. The project is self-directed and study is independent of the program but is supported by lecturers in supervisory roles. Assessment is based on the process and presentation of an agreed and completed body of work. The project enables students to develop an industry-based project that covers all aspects relatable to contemporary global fashion practice, including design and development of an original collection of fashion garments and associated marketing collateral, including portfolio and photoshoot. On completion of this subject students are prepared for a range of disciplinary and industry-based activities including employment, independent practice, graduate competition entry and master's-level study.
