The Fashion major at ECU has a strength and a point of difference in our focus on creative practice methodologies, structure of accumulative learning and contemporary presentation methods. This is evidenced in the high calibre graduate events that are produced each year. The ECU Fashion major prepares our graduates to be adaptable to a range of career opportunities in the areas of fashion, arts and design by instilling in them the ability to balance creative and practical design, problem-solve and communicate effectively. In their final year, the students develop a professional portfolio, photographic collaboration, as well as plan and organise the graduate presentation that supports and frames their self-directed fashion collection.

Our course values learning through making in an accumulative way and encourages students to build upon formal and conceptual skills with self-directed research. Throughout their study, students are supported in the presentation their work in industry events with garments showcased as part of Eco Fashion Week Australia, the Perth Fashion Festival Future Runway and Urban Couture, City of Joondalup. As a result, all our graduates are equipped with a solid methodology and contextual understanding for independent practice as emerging designers with their own unique voice within a competitive market.
