About the Course

This honours degree offers you the opportunity to advance your design process, develop independent practice, and deepen your specialisation in textile design industries. You will research and examine your design practice within the context of critical, engaged and contemporary textiles systems, and related disciplines. You will expand and explore your key design skills, techniques, materials and expressions to advance your design practice for targeted contexts. This course is designed as part of the Advanced Fashion and Textiles Design Studios, where you will be immersed in creatively challenging and engaging contemporary practice. As a graduate, you will be able to demonstrate design strategies that reflect contemporary practice, emerging markets and economies, and materially-led design across and outside the textile and fashion design discipline. This advanced knowledge will deepen your portfolio, and set you up for professional design and design-related roles in industry. The course utilises research-enabled subjects and strategies to tap into emergent discipline areas, and offers specific pathways through a project-led model and independently-designed projects in specific industry contexts.
