Social function and narrative fiction meet in contemporary fashion as it explores, interprets and redefines both generational and gender identities. Located at the intersections of art, design and everyday life, this Master's Studio is an interdisciplinary trend laboratory; a platform that bridges the gap between markets, media, and fashion discourses. Promoting an approach to fashion design – from apparel to accessory design – that is both independent and experimental, we will develop new strategies for the human body and it's effective contexts. This programme will range from experimental to pattern design and collection development; and from men's fashion through to interdisciplinary forms and formats of presentation. This Master's Studio will provide students with close personal support as they develop their creative identities and prepare for professional practice.
