Orientation 1 is the introductory course to the MFA Fashion Design & Society Program and is concentrated during the first week of the first semester. The aim is to bring the students together and for them to be able to experience group learning as well as individual learning while cultivating a dialogue for future design debates and discussions. The intensive will be based on a ‘field research trip’ within New York City. The course intends to draw upon unassuming areas of research as well as traditional and extensive sources of study. Additionally, it aims to familiarize the students with a new city and challenge those students who ‘know’ the city while enabling them to find new ways of conducting research. The course will contribute to the successful delivery of the Personal Identity: Design Studio 1 course.
