The course Performance Of Design focuses on the physical delivery of the designers representation and communication skills in reflection of their individual design identity. In the 2nd year of the program, MFA Fashion Design students are urged to engage, challenge, develop and strengthen the delivery of their physical communication skills in support of their design identity. While the program excels in crafting and delivering fashion designers that showcase individual expertise in the areas of fashion design as a skill, this new additional course will aid the students to deliver this expertise in a convincing physical manner to their audience (clientele, recruiters, HR, design directors, etc.…). In the current contemporary mind-set it is key for designers to communicate in a meaningful relating to their design identity as contribution to culture. To be able to assert and skillfully deliver this message with confidence is crucial in the success of any image-maker. The course isn’t focused on forcing students to become something that they are not – it is however focused on them managing and controlling the delivery of their presentational skills. The course will consist of a variety of performance-based exercises focused on physical and vocal delivery of their design identity.
