Details of Learning Activities

Details of Learning Activities
The course is integrated with LMTFD5010A Develop and present Design concepts within specific guidelines
and LMTFD4004A Calculate cost estimates for fashion products to form a cluster or learning program called Design Studio 2.
In this course you will be involved in blended learning with both theoretical and practical tasks involved in the development and fit of patterns. This process will be integrated into the following key activities that you are required to undertake
• research outside of regular class times.
• integrate skills across the design and product development process and focus on the use and experimentation of design studio processes based on fashion industry requirements. This will result in the production of a fashion design product/s which meets specified design briefs

Design Studio 2 this semester will consist of two major projects and a minor costing assignment (that will be assessed as part of project 1). Some elements of these tasks will run concurrently and students are expected to time manage projects to ensure that all expected due dates are met.
