FFD 617

Collection Creative Direction

Through a case study approach, students will analyze the creative direction of an established designer's collection. Research and analysis will consider the philosophical, sociological and artistic concepts and references. Building upon the research phase, students will explore the body, movement, proportions, and other elements to develop new narratives that inform a design philosophy. Combining a design philosophy with conceptualization and vision, a parameter-based method is applied to articulate a creative direction. Interpretation of form, silhouette, material, and process with an expression of social and ecological responsibility drives the creation of a speculative object that can be worn. Students will develop a cohesive collection of garments expanding on the vision and concept of their speculative object.
