Billy Blue is happy to announce that we will be offering the Branded Fashion Degree in Brisbane starting March 2011. The accreditation comes at a great time as students are receiving their HSC Results this week and will be considering their options for next year.
Branded fashion is a huge growth area that requires talented designers to generate clothing that resonates with a brand’s image, meaning and price point.
The new course has been developed by industry veteran, Dr Mieke Leppens, in consultation with leading design houses in Australia, Europe and the Unites States.
It is the first, and only, course in Australia to balance design strengths such as drawing, written and visual communication, with management, planning and business skills.
“The fashion industry has moved on from needing good sewers and pattern makers. Fashion houses are demanding students come equipped with a cutting-edge eye for contemporary designs and the required industry and business knowledge needed to the tough demands of a brand fashion brief,” says Billy Blue College of Design program director, Dr Mieke Leppens.
“The Branded Fashion course will appeal to students who have a natural eye for forecasting trends, cultural demands and attitudes towards contemporary design. The course will teach students to utilise their design and academic knowledge and skills,” says Dr Leppens.
