The aim of this subject is to enable students to define their potential career direction, and to design and develop a showcase collection for the runway, which reflects their design aesthetic, skills and knowledge. The purpose is for students to further develop their professional voice and creative vision as a designer, while identifying where this role sits in the broader fashion industry context. The development of the students’ showcase collection will be underpinned by theory, conceptual research and knowledge. This subject is intended to advance the students’ ability to research their target audience, while demonstrating their ability to successfully plan and market a fashion range. Students will also create a fashion blog as a communication tool to critically reflect on the progress of their showcase range. As an integrated studies unit, this subject will also build on the design, technology and production subject knowledge from years one and two with the introduction of new experimental and innovative skills and techniques.
