ART & DESIGN : TEXTILE DESIGN (FASHION & TEXTILES)
WHY STUDY FASHION & TEXTILES?
This course will enable you to use creative visualisation and drawing to develop design concepts alongside finished samples and products. You’ll develop research and practical skills, giving you a thorough understanding of the fashion process from concept to realisation.
The aims and learning outcomes for these qualifications are to enable learners to develop:
Intellectual, imaginative, creative and intuitive capabilities
Investigative, analytical, experimental, practical, technical and expressive skills, aesthetic understanding and critical judgement
Independence of mind in developing, refining and communicating their own ideas, their own intentions and their own personal outcomes
The experience of working with a broad range of media

Learners should produce two elements: (i) a portfolio of practical work showing their personal response to either a starting point, brief, scenario or stimulus, devised and provided by the learner or centre (ii) a related study: an extended response of a guided minimum of 1000 words.
Component 02: Externally set task
The early release paper will be issued on 1 February and will provide learners with a number of themes, each with a range of written and visual starting points, briefs and stimuli.
