Course overview

Course overview

Delivered in partnership with the University of Canberra, the Bachelor of Applied Fashion features an innovative and applied approach to fashion education.

You will engage in holistic creative projects, and learn problem solving and analytical tasks which will prepare you to work within the industrial, social and cultural creation frameworks needed to build a career in this dynamic field. You will learn to develop fashion concepts and communicate those concepts through cutting edge visual artefacts, and produce fashion items within well-articulated design briefs.

You will graduate with advanced technical skills in fashion design and manufacturing, alongside theoretical understandings of how the fashion system works. You will enter the exciting and diverse fashion industry with a strong commitment to creative approaches for problem solving, and a personal design philosophy which is demonstrated in proficiency in pattern engineering and 3D garment construction through applied apparel technology.

Units

If you have completed one of the below diplomas, you may gain up to a year's credit towards this qualification.

  • LMT50307 Diploma of Applied Fashion Design and Technology 
  • LMT60307 Advanced Diploma of Applied Fashion Design and Technology
  • MST50116 Diploma of Applied Fashion Design and Merchandising
  • MST60116 Advanced Diploma of Applied Fashion and Merchandising

The course aims to initially develop student's key skillsets covering research, design, manufacturing and pattern cutting, which will underpin and inform a personal design philosophy and the chosen area of specialism. As students learn to excel in design, they are encouraged to venture outside the immediate discipline of fashion design and visual media to assess the needs of the ever-changing global economy to provide design solutions for the future. The course engages with many market levels, from couture to high street, through a range of projects, many of which are in sponsored by specific labels or companies.

Below is the Study Pattern for new students.
