Fashion (Intermediate)

1. Overview

This course is recommended for students that have completed the Foundation Fashion course, or who are confident in garment construction and want to learn more complex construction and pattern adaption.

Throughout the two semesters students will produce a body of work demonstrating sewing techniques, pattern making/adaption, work on individual projects and produce a final fashion outcome. This year the focus will be on coats.

2. What you will study

Due to the time consuming nature of garment construction, students will be required to continue working on their projects out of class to complete this course and build confidence in self-directed study.

Students will be supported to understand the design process through class talks, individual/group discussions and studio-based practice.

Students are encouraged to keep a visual diary, which reflects their personal practice, inspiration, individual interests, work of other designer/artists and fabric research.

3. Entry Requirements

This course is recommended for students that have completed the Foundation Fashion course, or who have some previous experience in garment construction.

All students are required to be at least 16 years of age at the commencement of the course.
