89016 Reframing Fashion and Textile Practice

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



This subject addresses the role of the fashion designer within contemporary fashion and textile practices and explores emerging trends that point to challenges, future roles and opportunities for fashion creative practitioners. Over recent years fashion and textile design have emerged as interdisciplinary practices aligned with new modes of presentation and approaches to design activity. In this subject students undertake critical investigation of both their own practice and the broader context of contemporary fashion and/or textile practice. The investigation enables students to critically reflect on their own practice and through a series of structured research and studio activities be able to re-position fashion and textiles practices at the nexus of innovation, meaning-making and critical engagement. The aim of the subject is for students to reposition their practice for re-entry to industry or subsequent postgraduate research pathways through the identification of foci for further investigation.
