Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The Course includes the development and realization of collections designed during the Fashion Collection Design – module.

Students manage the process of developing their designs into garments and develop their design identity further through exploring the cut of garments.

They will have in- depth understanding of the interactions between material, shape and construction and expertise in creating silhouettes. Through regular fittings students will adopt 3D problem solving skills, they are fluent in experimenting with silhouette and cut and confident in finding working solutions that allow them to express their vision. They are challenged into critical thinking in design, detailing and construction of garments and encouraged to realize materials for their collections. An integrated creative, research- oriented and technical viewpoint into garment construction is essential; Students are proactive in exploring innovative technical solutions and recognize how to benefit from emerging technologies and craft.

The course provides an insight into professional sample development and production processes in diverse fashion industry environments; students understand their positioning as designers within industrial frameworks.

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

During the course students create prototypes and samples from a selection of designs made during the Fashion Collection Design- module.

They research and experiment with shape, volume and garment construction in tutored fittings and independently. 

The design development process is supported by design tutorials and critical dialogue. 

The course will include design studio- and industry visits to offer an insight into current and future sample development processes.

Students are familiarised with 3D- modelling systems and their application possibilities in the fashion industry and they will learn how to take advantage of them.

At the end of the course students prepare a conceptual presentation of their final collection and present it to external professionals. The most potential collections will be recommended for international competitions, shows and exhibitions.
