Thesis 2: Collection

Spring 2023

Taught By: John Bauernfeind and Brooke Garner

Section: C1

CRN: 3204

Credits: 6

As the second in a two-part course sequence of senior major project study, students will draw upon experience gained at earlier stages of the program. This is a self-initiated thesis project(s) that encompasses theoretical and practical design practice. It allows the student to research and develop an area of interest, providing the opportunity to demonstrate ideas and abilities in a study, which is negotiated and progressed in 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 manage and communicate their processes, which will be documented through research/reflective journals and technical notebooks where applicable, while developing an individually-negotiated approach to a design question or issue.

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 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 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.

This is a self-initiated thesis project(s) that encompasses theoretical and practical design practice. It allows the student to research and develop an area of interest, providing the opportunity to demonstrate ideas and abilities in a study, which is negotiated and progressed in 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 manage and communicate their processes, which will be documented through research/reflective journals and technical notebooks where applicable, while developing an individually-negotiated approach to a design question or issue.

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.

Thesis 2: Digital Fashion

Spring 2023

Taught By: Soojin Kang and Brit Shaked

Section: D1

CRN: 11165

Credits: 6

As the second in a two-part course sequence of senior major project study, students will draw upon experience gained at earlier stages of the program. This is a self-initiated thesis project(s) that encompasses theoretical and practical design practice. It allows the student to research and develop an area of interest, providing the opportunity to demonstrate ideas and abilities in a study, which is negotiated and progressed in 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 manage and communicate their processes, which will be documented through research/reflective journals and technical notebooks where applicable, while developing an individually-negotiated approach to a design question or issue.

Digital Fashion is delivered in person. 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. 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. Students will continue 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.
