DFB401 Fashion Design Studio 4

Unit synopsis

This unit provides expanded knowledge and skills for the theory and practice of fashion design for societal contexts, including the development of more advanced skills to communicate and realise design ideas in an integrated studio environment. The suite of Fashion Design Studio units form the spine of learning for fashion design understandings in the Bachelor of Design (Honours) Fashion program and include practical skills and knowledge of garment construction and pattern cutting. This unit is the fourth in a series of eight Fashion Design Studio units and provides more advanced knowledge and skills for the theory and practice of fashion design. It builds upon the understandings acquired in the unit DFB301 Fashion Design Studio 3 and also provides a base for understanding fashion in societal contexts. DFB403 Advanced Fashion Studio Practice provides support for more complex practical skills and knowledge in garment patternmaking and construction.
