History of Textile, Fashion and Accessory Design

Open Day - Foundation Studies

Course Description

This course surveys the key historical design developments in textile, fashion and accessory from the Industrial Revolution to present times. The course explores core ideas, key designers and the everyday designed objects that form a part of our material culture. It aims to create both a conceptual and visual understanding of the diverse design aesthetic from the 19th to the 20th century by rooting it in its sociocultural, political, economic, and technological contexts. Ideological themes are explored ranging from the handcrafted aesthetic to industrial modernism and ultimately delving into ideas of Post Modernism and the Information age.
