This qualification is part of the Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Training Package. It is for people who want to learn and apply fundamental creative, practical skills and knowledge as a means of gaining employment at an introductory level in the fashion industry. Depending on the electives selected, students will learn about different aspects of the fashion industry, including basic sketching; identifying and applying design processes; identifying and selecting fibres and fabrics according to their performance and handling characteristics; product development processes such as basic pattern making, cutting, machining, embellishing and finishing fashion garments, dyeing and printing techniques to produce Aboriginal textile designs, marketing to local outlets and using computing technology relevant to the fashion industry. Students can select a special series of units targeted to the development and application of the unique fashion and textile designs used in Aboriginal culture, enabling them to specialise in fashion or textile design for a market requiring this speciality. In a highly supervised training environment they will learn what it is like to work in the fashion industry, and how to work safely and produce high quality products. This is a hands-on course that allows for creative expression to develop and be displayed through the development and production of fashion garments and/or textile products.
