Course In-Depth

The course begins with an introduction to the discipline, giving you the tools to operate in your specialist design field. Throughout the course of study, each component gives experience in different aspects of design practice and theory, with an emphasis on ethical and sustainable materials and technologies, and the fusion of contemporary and naturally sustainable traditional skills enabling you to build confidence in exploring your subject.

 

We see this combination of curious enquiry and professional rigour as key to nurturing the designer as a ‘critical professional’, grounded in the specialist field of Fashion Design, but one who understands the need and is equipped to work towards an ethical and sustainable industry. Practical skills are taught throughout the course in workshops and tutorials using traditional and state of the art equipments.

Course Structure

Year 1 – INCEPTION

The first year of the design course is dedicated to build up the foundation skills in the students with respect to multifarious cross discipline studies, research and projects. This year focuses strongly to strengthen the core and noncore design base of the students through conducting various seminars, lectures, field visits and studio works giving them a hands on approach to different design skills with a global perspective in terms of design visualization, interpretation, expression. Workshops and tutorial will take place throughout the year to develop the practical skills of the students. Students will also learn the historical and cultural context for fashion.

 

Students will undertake crafts based work experience in the First year.

 

YEAR 1 OUTCOME – INDUSTRY SUBMERSION (CROSS DISCIPLINARY WORK EXPERIENCE).

Year 2 – EVOLUTION

In this year students takes up their knowledge achieved in their inception year to focus strongly on their chosen field of specialisation in design studies evolving into a more creative individual through design exploration and experimentation with specific research processes and techniques with design experts and mentors. They look more into the alternative processes of design ideation, techniques and production through their in-depth knowledge on research and development with interlinked design modules and thinking processes.

 

Students will undertake work experience – design internship in the second year.

 

YEAR 2 OUTCOME – DESIGN CONCIOUSNESS (SPECIALIST DESIGN INTERNSHIP).
