Balance creativity and commercial reality

Want to own your own label or work with global brands? RMIT can get you there.

When you study a certificate, diploma or associate degree, you’ll work alongside real industry clients to create styles and designs that see the light of day.  

Fashion design taught me a lot about production, quality, working out pricing structures - which I apply to all my products - working in teams and dealing with suppliers. It was during the fashion design program that I started my business as a side project.

- Linda Vydra, Associate Degree in Fashion Design and Technology

Meet the RMIT designers testing the limits of style at Melbourne Fashion Week

Students claim their spots as ones to watch with their adventurous and complex designs on Melbourne Fashion Week’s Student Runway.

The event is a unique opportunity for students to share their work with the local design community, and position themselves as the creative talent of fashion’s next generation, leading the way for emerging design.

Experimenting with construction, form and process, the designers’ garments are inspired by everything from technological communication to the comfort of a hug. Students use their craft to communicate messages of humour, explore sociological studies in masculinity, and understand how humans communicate support and kindness to one another.

The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) partnered with the Bachelor of Arts (Textile Design) course to support the next generation of Australian talent, providing the students with valuable experience in merchandising, from concept to execution.

Claire Beale, program manager, said the collaboration helped students gain direct experience before graduation.

“A strong focus on industry relevance and employability has ensured that graduates feel work ready. It was important to find a balance between giving the students creative license to develop their ideas, while ensuring the commercial consideration of the client’s brief were achieved.”
