Research and Professional Practice


This subject develops students' understanding of professional practice in the fashion and textile design industries. The focus for the subject is on contemporary fashion design as an interdisciplinary practice engaged in technology, creativity and innovation. Students develop an understanding of the current fashion industry as an engagement with global systems of culture and technology, and develop an individual visual language for their practice as fashion designers. Students engage with other design disciplines including graphic and visual documentation for fashion design and consider the role of the fashion designer as both professional and product. Students endeavour to develop a system of articulation of their creativity within the product and the systems of fashion design development as an adaptive system of creativity.
