    Course description and aims

    The Bachelor of Fashion Design at the Fashion Design Studio (FDS) is a three year degree that prepares graduates for creative employment in the fashion industry in Australia and overseas. The degree aims to produce highly creative, work ready design professionals who can apply their knowledge and creative ability across different work contexts and roles in the fashion industry.

    Students gain specific knowledge in design, fashion principles, illustration, visual communication, fashion production techniques and professional practice. Graduates will be equipped to manage the design and development process from concept to realisation. While the program emphasises creative design practice, it aims to produce graduates with broad knowledge and skills in fashion design, as well as specialist knowledge in a specific area or field.
