Diploma of Applied Fashion Design and TechnologyThis course is for people who want to learn and apply creative, practical,
technical skills and knowledge, and to explore the application of design and
product development processes as a means of gaining employment in the fashion
industry at an assistant manager level.

The course provides 'hands-on' learning. It allows for creative expression to
develop and be displayed through the design, development and production of
fashion ranges by applying design studio processes to meet client briefs.

The focus of this qualification is on the design and development of fashion

construction, garment realisation to merchandising, all within a fashion
industry context.

The principles and techniques of block construction, figure and size analysis,
patternmaking and garment cutting and construction are the key to successful
garment design and development.

Depending on the electives selected, areas covered include textile fibre and
fabric identification and analysis of their characteristics, fabric manipulation
to achieve creative effects, identifying design influences, sketching, fashion
illustration, and applying design elements and principles to fashion concept
development, developing product specifications, development of the fashion
designs through patternmaking, pattern draping, grading and advanced
construction techniques for complex garments, lingerie and swimwear design,
block construction using sizing systems, analysing garment fit, calculating
costs and communicating and selling design concepts, using computer technology
and specialist fashion computer software for fashion industry applications.

The training environment will simulate what it is like to work in the fashion
industry, and how to work safely to produce quality product outcomes.

course.
