Undergraduate Course
Majors Only
Thesis 1: Collection
Fall 2023
Taught By: John Bauernfeind and Faculty TBA
Section: C1

CRN: 3313

Credits: 6

In the first course in a two-part course sequence of senior major project study, students will draw upon experience gained at earlier stages of the program. Self-initiated thesis projects encompass theoretical and practical design practice. Thesis allows students to research and develop an area of interest, and to demonstrate progressive ideas and abilities of breadth and depth. It also requires the student to plan and develop a proposal/brief, based upon the synthesis of exploration, ideation, and research. Students are required to develop an individually-negotiated approach to a design question or issue; and to manage, communicate, and document their processes through research/reflective journals and technical notebooks, where applicable. Note that students are required to register in the same section for PUFD 4221 Thesis 2 for continuity and progression of learning.

The Collection pathway challenges you to consider approaches to body, gender, age, and size, amongst others, in order to develop new narratives, definitions and terminologies within a clearly defined visual aesthetic beyond traditional contexts. Deep exploration in terms of research and process towards unexpected outcomes across gender is encouraged. Students are encouraged to redefine the meaning of a collection.
Open to: Bachelor's degree in Fashion Design majors only. Pre-requisite(s): PUFD 3321 (or APFY 3021/5) Design Studio 4 & PUFD 3331 (or APFY 3023) Specialized Studio 2.

Phygital Fashion is delivered in person. Referring to a mode of artistic production and representation linked to immaterial and material culture, this course will use digital strategies and tools to create fashion outcomes that exist in both digital and physical spaces. The digital age and the power of social media provide a platform for new curatorial practices and creative expressions of self and community. With a multiplicity of experiences, we are constantly accumulating, experiencing, and creating fashion blurring the physical and digital realms. Students will continue building on technical and making skills and using software and digital tools they have learned throughout the BFA program. Students will analyze and study social dynamics, emotional impacts, and new aesthetic forms activated by digital technologies, and explore human relations and identities, multiculturalism, sustainability, and the expansive field of fashion. Students will explore the use of technology for creating, prototyping, making, simulating, sizing, presenting, animating, digital printing, image making, and storytelling. In this course, students will be encouraged to study subjects such as NFTs, gaming, the metaverse, and digital inclusion; and tools such as Unity, Blender, CLO 3D, True to Form, Browzwear, Rhino, ZBrush, AR/VR, and AI. This course is open to all pathways and encourages students to develop both individual and collaborative work.

The Materiality pathway enables students to focus on the application of material and textile innovation to fashion design in relation to the body and beyond. Courses aim to help students generate new possibilities for fashion with a focus on craft with a highly specialized approach to textile innovation, including dyeing, print, technology, weave and knit, as drivers for design. Deep exploration in terms of research towards unexpected outcomes in both apparel and non-apparel are encouraged.

The Materiality pathway enables students to focus on the application of material and textile innovation to fashion design in relation to the body and beyond. Courses aim to help students generate new possibilities for fashion with a focus on craft with a highly specialized approach to textile innovation, including dyeing, print, technology, weave and knit, as drivers for design. Deep exploration in terms of research towards unexpected outcomes in both apparel and non-apparel are encouraged.

Credits: 6

In the first course in a two-part course sequence of senior major project study, students will draw upon experience gained at earlier stages of the program. Self-initiated thesis projects encompass theoretical and practical design practice. Thesis allows students to research and develop an area of interest, and to demonstrate progressive ideas and abilities of breadth and depth. It also requires the student to plan and develop a proposal/brief, based upon the synthesis of exploration, ideation, and research. Students are required to develop an individually-negotiated approach to a design question or issue; and to manage, communicate, and document their processes through research/reflective journals and technical notebooks, where applicable. Note that students are required to register in the same section for PUFD 4221 Thesis 2 for continuity and progression of learning.

The Fashion Product pathway takes a non-apparel focus and approach to form, sculpture, and shape, and offers students an opportunity to redefine this category utilizing a variety of traditional design/make approaches alongside technological innovation towards unique inventive outcomes. Deep exploration in terms of research and process towards unexpected outcomes in all forms is encouraged.

The Collection pathway challenges you to consider approaches to body, gender, age, and size, amongst others, in order to develop new narratives, definitions and terminologies within a clearly defined visual aesthetic beyond traditional contexts. Deep exploration in terms of research and process towards unexpected outcomes across gender is encouraged. Students are encouraged to redefine the meaning of a collection.

The Systems and Society pathway considers design in the broader context of the fashion system and society. Approaches to garment manufacturing, methods of production and craft of use are considered towards a redefinition of make/design processes and the system they inhabit. Deep exploration in terms of research and process towards unexpected outcomes exploring non-conformist and socio-political approaches to the body, image, communication, and dress can result in apparel and in non-apparel directions.
