The Fashion major promotes a creative and flexible approach to garment and encourages a playful yet committed attitude of critical enquiry and investigation in a hands on, immersive studio environment.

A range of design and making methodologies are introduced through engaging practical projects that involve the manipulation of materials, form and construction methods. Technical processes for textile design and garment construction are applied in relationship to self-directed visual research, encouraging students to develop their own visual language contextualised through research into contemporary and historical approaches to garment, the body and the cultural space that these occupy.

Students are supported in the presentation of their work via industry events and gain useful experience working collaboratively on professional presentations such as the annual graduate exhibition and parade performance.

The Fashion course prepares graduates to be adaptable to a range of career opportunities in fashion, arts and design fields through its balance of creative and practical design outcomes, problem-solving, self-organisation and communication skills. On completion 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.
