Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback Source Recommendation
Low level of interaction, feedback for online communication. Email from student Lecturer to provide more frequent student communications via Moodle Discussion Forums, emails and Collaborate sessions.
There is no support throughout the entire Home Economics Textiles component for people who may not have known how to sew prior to commencing this course. Student Survey It is recommended that students complete EDVT11021 Textile Technology which provides an introduction to sewing techniques prior to enrolling in EDSE14001 Fashion Design.
The online resources (Moodle learning material) and some information outdated and of poor quality e.g. scanned in photocopies are not appropriate resources and not university quality. Email from student Moodle content will be updated with more modern and appropriate Fashion Design resource material to support student learning.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Analyse the elements and principles of design
  2. Investigate local and global fashion design, sustainable textile trends, indigenous application of inks and dyes, issues of sustainability of textiles amd the fashion industry.
  3. Analyse, critically evaluate and communicate design ideas using a range of presentation techniques including social media.
  4. Analyse and think creatively when using digital media to communicate design ideas, conduct evaluation tests and checks.
  5. Demonstrate production techniques, including pattern making and sewing.
  6. Experiment with scientific and design approaches to define and solve problems relating to the physical, chemical, aesthetic aspects of fashion design.
  7. Produce two complete design folios demonstrating fundamentals of design and the design process, including justification of theoretical understandings underpinning the study of fashion design.

2 Portfolio

Assessment Title Portfolio Task 1: Skills & Knowledge
Task Description

Purpose of Portfolio Task 1

To work with confidence in Fashion Design contexts you are required to know, understand and apply the fundamental principles, skills and knowledge that underpin the discipline. Portfolio Task 1 is an opportunity for you to create and collect a number of useful resources to use in various textiles, fashion and educational environments. Despite the ever changing nature of the Fashion industry, you will be able to refer back and use this Portfolio Task 1 for many years to come, as the fundamentals of fashion design remain relevant and useful.

What is required?

During this 12 week online course you will create and collate a number of activities into a hard-copy portfolio. This portfolio will demonstrate your understanding and application of the content knowledge and foundational principles needed in the Fashion Design process: investigate, ideate, produce and evaluate.

When completing each activity you should select and design materials and techniques that satisfy all factors. All illustrations and activities need to include annotations that justify the decisions made.

Your completed portfolio will need to demonstrate:

  • Effective planning
  • Time management skills;
  • Organisation of resources when completing each activity;
  • Effective and efficient management of all available resources; and
  • Performing all techniques to a high standard of workmanship.

The portfolio must include the following topics:

  • The Design Process
  • Elements and Principles of Design
  • Historical & Indigenous Perspectives
  • Cradle to Cradle: environmental sustainability practices
  • Application of Inks & Dyes
  • Anatomy and Figure Drawing
  • Introduction to Photoshop
  • A4 copy/photo of a A3 Mood Board
  • A4 copy/photo of a A3 Story Board
  • Pattern-making Basics
  • Fibres and Fabrics
  • Evidence of successful completion of all Quizzes

The complete list of activities to include in your Portfolio Task 1 is provided and explained in the weekly Moodle content. A checklist will be used for marking purposes.

Extension Activities for advanced skilled and keen Fashion Designers (just for fun): You are welcome to expand on selected activities with your own more advanced exploration of knowledge and resources. Please note that you are not required to complete any activities from the textbook - only those activities as directed in Moodle are mandatory. However, to explore your own skills and creativity, if you wish, you may choose to complete activities that interest you from the textbook. Any extension activities that you choose to complete will not be marked for assessment purposes, but will enhance your Portfolio and skill set.

How to submit your Portfolio Task 1

An electronic version of your Portfolio Task 1 must be submitted via Moodle in Week 12 with all tasks complete. A hard copy of your Portfolio Task 1 must also be delivered to your tutor at Residential School for feedback.

Portfolio Task 1 submitted as follows:

  1. If you have ICT skills, you may choose to construct an online e-portfolio which includes photographs of your original work with commentary for each activity. Web-based platform (of your choice, not visable to the public) must be easy to navigate and each activity clearly identified and presented. To submit an e-portfolio you need to upload a WORD document via Moodle with an active hyperlink to your e-portfolio and provide password (if required); OR
  2. The alternative is to upload a Word or .pdf document with each activity clearly photographed and identified. Important - compress all photographs appropriately but ensure that each photograph is clear for the marker to see. Upload the whole Word document or .pdf in a .zip file to Moodle. Do not submit activities individually to Moodle - it must be one complete document; AND
  3. A hard copy of your Portfolio Task 1 must be delivered to your tutor at Residential School.

More information is available on the Fashion Design Moodle unit site.

3 Practical and Written Assessment

Assessment Title Design, Construct and Exhibit
Task Description

Task Description

You will be working in a school textile/sewing room. There is a series of practical tasks to be undertaken every day.

You are to design and construct a garment inspired by your Mood Board ‘Sustainability and Indigenous Perspectives’. You are to exhibit the garment to the public in a fashion parade on Thursday evening 29th June, 6pm. Your friends and family are welcome to come!

Your process journal that will show how decisions have been made and validate practical work with annotated illustrations. This process journal will be used in your 3 minute oral presentation (marketing pitch) on Friday 30th June.

Orientation for your creative and critical thinking strategies

Ordinarily when we are confronted with a task - say a problem to be solved - we consciously become logical. We use our existing storehouse of words and phrases to set down our ideas and we use our storehouse of learned solutions to face a problem (your existing skills and life experiences). What do we do when our old solutions or ways of expressing ourselves are not sufficient to do the job?

This design brief is intended to help you explore creativity and critical thinking.

Design Brief

Your client

An up-market fashion house is opening soon, with one outlet in the CBD, and another in Yeppoon. It will stock fashion for 18-40 year old professionals who want up-market street clothes that are distinctly different, have a ‘wow’ factor but at the same time are functional. The proposed name of the fashion outlet is ‘Sustainable Street Wear’. The name derives the kind of garment stocked, introducing sustainability and indigenous design into everyday functionality and pizzazz. The garments difference, yet functionality, are intended to stand out in a crowd and for others to ask “Where can I get one of those?” The client's driving force for making decisions will be ideation, quality of construction, fabric design, and finish.

Your task

You have been invited to suggest a range theme for next season and to present a prototype garment (skirt or pants) suited to this outlet, its clientele, and your suggested theme.

Constraints

The completed garment will be presented for judging on the ‘Project Runway’ catwalk on Thursday evening.

  • The name and intent of the fashion house ‘Sustainable Indigenous Street Wear’ and the taste of the clientele must be captured in the garment's design.
  • Your theme should be creatively evident.
  • The quality of construction, fabric design, and finish should be of commercial standard.
  • The fabric used should meet the characteristics of being ‘sustainable’.
  • Creativity is very important. Creativity is your capacity to link all aspects into an aesthetically and functionally pleasing design that is audience appropriate, yet distinctively different.

3 Minute Marketing Pitch & Display

On Friday 30 June, you will have 3 minutes to deliver your Marketing Pitch to an audience (your peers). In your marketing pitch, you will advocate for your sustainable design and ability as a designer. To accompany your marketing pitch, you are required to set up a display of:

  1. Your garment with a label noting your theme.
  2. A Story Board on A3 paper or board showing the final design (photohop) with a sample of fabric used.
  3. Your process folio which demonstrates:
  • Your creative and evolutionary journey
  • Technology practice in action
  • Captures the intent of a process folio - this happens on a daily basis: uses annotation, images, samples, doodles, thoughts, alterations, linear treatment of actions, a series of steps on how to construct your garment and/or compiled after the event.
Assessment Due Date At Residential School - Tuesday 27 June to Friday 30 June. All days inclusive. Attendance is compulsory.
