In this course you will apply a wide range of technically advanced skills in design, pattern and clothing construction. This will allow you to experiment and develop garments and styles using a variety of fabrics, addressing challenges of fit, proportion and silhouette.
Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development
In this course you will develop the following program learning outcomes:
1. Apply and creatively adapt a body of theoretical and technical knowledge and skills in fashion design and technology to your practice or future study
3. lnvestigate and work creatively to solve garment construction problems related to fashion design ideas.
5. Identify, analyse and reflect on fashion technology in a local and/or global context
7. Apply initiative and judgement in planning, problem solving and decision making in your own work and working as part of a team
Upon successful completion of this course you will be able to:
• Investigate a design trend and analyse the information to solve fashion range development problems.
• Interpret and create designs that meet the design brief
• Develop finished sample garments using efficient and sustainable methods to industry standards
• Analyse your design ideas and present a product.
• Seek, evaluate and incorporate feedback for your own work to improve your work practices.
