Course Description

This course will provide you with an opportunity to engage with and celebrate fashion as a revered object, value and space. You will learn about the various sites where fashion happens: from the body to the art gallery and museum, from historical costume collections to contemporary fashion accessories. You will explore fashion design principles for developing your own concepts for a fashion exhibition or installation, and develop an understanding of sensorial experiences in space and how these methods can enhance your own creative practice.

The aim of this course is to provide creative practitioners from various disciplines an introduction to designing fashion experiences with a focus on basic principles for producing fashion spaces, places and objects.
