The Design Thesis Studio is the capstone project, preceded by Thesis Preparation in the Fall Semester where students develop their own self-directed proposal supported with all physical design iterations and developments in the pursuit of their Final Thesis Project. Design Thesis Studio brings together this research and developments to a stage where it can be utilized as building blocks of creating and finalizing the Thesis Project. It brings together all the research undertaken so far and it provides the student with the opportunity to focus on one significant project with experimentation, time and planning. It is a course consisting of focused design research and is expected to expand on their intellectual and theoretical thought processes for developing concepts within fashion, showing the innovative use of technical cutting and use/manipulation of materials. The Final Thesis Project will be led by the Program Director and the Associate Director. This project must demonstrate rigorous intellectual thinking with coherent design development both within 2D and 3D. The process must be being fully documented drawing upon the written form, 2D, photography, film, and 3D clothing.
