This subject introduces students to emerging fashion and textile design digital tools, including garment simulation in two- and three-dimensional augmented reality spaces. These tools help enhance and compliment students’ understanding of material practices through a digital medium. The technologies are contextualised within historical, emerging and speculative industry practices. Connections between technologies and sustainability and social justice in fashion and textiles are made explicit during the subject. The possibilities as well as the limitations of various technologies are discussed in relation to fashion and textile design practices.
