Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

You should have satisfactorily completed the prerequisite course GRAP2243 Fashion Design Studio 3 before you commence this course.


Course Description

This the first of a suite of three studio courses that allow you to experience and test a range of fashion practice models. 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. Research, design methods, production techniques, presentation and communication of your work and ideas will align with the area of specialisation. The range of studio offerings will be based around a concept, a technique or a specific genre of fashion.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

Program Learning Outcomes
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:

  • Undertake individual research into a given field of enquiry 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
  • Prototype design outcomes using processes of making relevant to the studio specialisation
  • Articulate your own innovative design proposals
  • Apply skills in creative conceptual thinking
