Year 12 Textiles and Fashion Technology
Teacher in Charge: R. Pedersen
In this course, one skills based project will be constructed, followed by the major design based project.
First skills based project - This project is to develop students skills and vocabulary, there is an NCEA assessment linked to this, past projects have been, bomber jackets, semi tailored trousers, semi tailored jackets. Past garments from this have gone on to win at the Bernina fashion awards.
Second design driven project - This project includes internal and external assessment. The technological process is followed throughout the project in which a solution is developed for a given brief. The brief is analysed and a need and related issues are identified by each individual student. Past projects have included jackets, ball dresses and high end streetwear. The students will be guided by the technological process which involves research, planning, time management, design, construction and ongoing evaluation. The final solution may be for the student or a client. The assessment choices will be tailored to meet the needs of the individual student. Again garments from this project have been successful at the Bernina fashion awards, including winning 2019 Northland designer of the year.
Students will also have exposure to a variety of experiences as available, in the past this has included, attending fashion week, a digital printing course at AUT, material research trips to Auckland, meeting industry professionals.
