Course Description

This course offers varied approaches to fashion design practice focusing on tailoring and in particular the jacket. A range of project briefs (studios) will be offered with divergent emphases on concepts of design, tailoring and the jacket. The individual studio emphases will draw on the experience and design practice of the respective studio leader and will frame the approach taken to classes and projects, including research, design methods, techniques in tailoring, making resolved prototypes, presentation and communication of your work and ideas.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

In this course you will develop the following program learning outcomes:

1. Operate professionally critically, and ethically in local and /or global practice within fashion design or across design boundaries
2. Gain insight into your own creativity, and develop efficient work practices to allow you to plan, produce and deliver fashion projects either as an independent design practitioner or in a team environment within a small, medium or large organization
3. Apply conceptual, critical and creative thinking that addresses relevant issues and informs imaginative and innovative design proposals, so you can make advanced decisions independently with clarity and maturity
4. Apply advanced theoretical and technical knowledge across the fashion discipline
5. Reflect upon and assess the global context of the fashion system, so as to apply your advanced skills for life-long learning and enable you to confidently contribute to an industry that is always evolving
6. Engage in research within the broader context of design, utilising digital and information systems, discipline specific discourse, conceptual frameworks, evaluation of relevant issues and with reference to the work of others in the field
7. Demonstrate a highly developed fluency in articulating ideas, clear arguments and rationales that effectively present design proposals and solutions to team members, clients, consultants, other design teams, and government and community stakeholders.


Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Articulate your own definition of tailoring
  • Differentiate between various notions of tailoring practice
  • Undertake individual research into techniques of construction underpinned by knowledge through making
  • Formulate and articulate a set of project specific design principles
  • Design through application of your research and specified design principles
  • Make patterns for and construct tailored jackets
