Course Overview

The Diploma of Branded Fashion Design is an all-inclusive qualification that starts you on the journey of understanding the business of what we wear as well as actually making the outfits. That means you’ll be called upon to create inspiring designs, develop and produce them for market… and deal with all the other people you’ll need to take those design concepts in your head and make them a reality. In the practical, real-world Design Studio subjects, you’ll learn all aspects of fashion design – how to use form, shape and colour, choosing materials, matching ideas with purpose, and more. Led by highly regarded industry professionals, you’ll investigate the theories behind design and marketing, evaluate communication and brand-fashion strategies, and scrutinise past, present and future fashion trends.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Demonstrate broad, coherent design knowledge and skills with depth in the underlying principles, theories and language of branded fashion design
  • Apply creative and analytical thinking to independently inform responses to unpredictable design challenges
  • Interpret, communicate and present ideas in a variety of formats to diverse audiences
  • Recognise the ongoing social, cultural and ethical responsibilities of the professional design community from a local and international perspective
