1 Rationale Fashion is economically important to consumers and producers in both local and international contexts. Advances in technology have enabled more efficient textile manufacture and garment production, and together with media and digital technologies, have made fashion a global industry. It is a dynamic industry that supports a wide variety of vocations, including fashion design, fashion technology, fashion merchandising and fashion sales.

Fashion is an integral part of everyday life, with individuals making choices about what clothing and accessories to wear. Identity often shapes and is shaped by fashion choices. Fashion choice is determined through the integration of two or more of the following culture, history, function (e.g. occasion, employment or recreation requirements), economic considerations, personal taste, peer group, availability and trends. Fashion choice ranges from the purely practical to the highly aesthetic and esoteric.

Through undertaking this course students will be challenged to use their imagination to create, innovate and express themselves and their ideas, and to design and produce design solutions in a range of fashion contexts. Students undertake group work and individual projects. They manage personal projects and are encouraged to work independently on some tasks.

The subject Fashion explores what underpins fashion culture, technology and design. It incorporates the study of three core topics Fashion culture, Fashion technologies and Fashion design. Fashion culture explores fashion history, trends and fashion careers. Fashion technologies examine textiles and materials1 and the technical skills required for garment, accessory and adornment construction. Fashion design focuses on the design process and visual literacies.

Students learn to appreciate the design aesthetics of others while developing their own personal style and aesthetic. They explore contemporary and historical fashion culture; learn to identify, understand and interpret fashion trends; and examine how the needs of different markets are met.

Fashion has a practical focus where students learn through doing as they engage in a design process to plan, generate and produce fashion items. Students investigate textiles and materials and their characteristics and how these qualities impact on their end use. They experiment with combining textiles and materials and how to make and justify aesthetic choices.

Through the design process students engage in design challenges while meeting the needs of clients, or develop products to suit design opportunities. Students investigate fashion merchandising and marketing, the visual literacies of fashion and become discerning consumers of fashion while appraising and critiquing fashion items and trends as well as their own products.

A course of study in Fashion can establish a basis for further edu
