Plan to study Fashion in Australia? Australia presents world-class opportunities for all those interested in Fashion at university level. Australia’s specialist schools have a reputation for producing graduates of professional standard who are able to work at all levels in the fashion and textiles industries.

澳洲提供具國際水準的學習機會給每位對大學時尚課程有興趣的學生,當地的專門學校長期致力於培訓時尚業界優良專業人才。

 

Who might decide to study Fashion in an Australian university?

那些人會考慮在澳洲讀時尚?

Your ambition could be to start your own fashion Fashion & Textiles business.

Or your goal might be working at a large, established fashion label.

It could be that you have a strategy to improve your professional profile and employability within the Fashion industry, getting what you need from a Masters degree. You want to show you have the kind of practical and theoretical knowledge that adds value to a company.

你可能懷抱著在時尚界創業的夢想,或者想要為知名品牌工作。也許你是計畫藉由取得碩士學位增進專業能力、加強求職履歷,證明自己在實作及理論兩方面都能為公司帶來成果。

 

The Fashion industry plus the industries that link to Fashion exist in a creative and business environment characterised by rapid change, so the Fashion world needs well-trained individuals with an enormous range of different skills. Universities face the challenge of nurturing each student’s creative ability while also enabling them to skill-up in business. This means as well as their craft, Fashion graduates know about merchandising and distribution, about the management and sustainability of supply chains – and plenty more that artists in other fields never need to consider. Universities must also provide industry-standard facilities, and teaching staff with impressive resumes full of industry experience.

時尚設計是變化快速、講求創意的商業領域,需要大量技能廣泛的專業人力。這門領域的師資面臨的挑戰是: 他們必須同時訓練學生的創意發揮及商務應用能力。除了時尚專業之外,這門科系的畢業學生也會了解商品行銷及物流作業、供應鏈管理、還有其他許多藝術科系學生通常不會接觸到的領域。而針對時尚科系,各家學校則必須提供業界等級的設備、擁有豐富業界工作背景的師資。

 

Among the best universities meeting that training challenge are the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University (RMIT), and Queensland University of Technology. First we’re going to have a quick look at QUT in Brisbane – a great destination for undergraduate study in Fashion – and we’ll answer some important questions about choosing to enter university first if you have your eye on a job in this most vibrant and competitive of the creative industries.

培育此門專業最成功的學校莫過於墨爾本皇家科技學院及昆士蘭科技大學。現在讓我們來看看時尚研究所的理想選擇—布里斯本的昆士蘭科技大學(QUT)。接著,我們會一一回答嚮往刺激創意產業的你在選擇大學時的疑問。

Queensland University of Technology: Bachelor of Fine Art (Fashion)

QUT 美術學士(時尚)

So you’re thinking about undergraduate training in Fashion…

Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane runs the Bachelors in Fine Art (Fashion) degree (or BFA for short). It’s an intensive course designed by QUT to build your creativity, to keep your individuality at the fore, and develop your awareness of the industries connected to Fashion.

位於布里斯本的昆士蘭科技大學提供時尚主修美術學士課程(簡稱BFA)。這門密集訓練課程專為建立學生的創造力及個人風格而設,同時也培養學生對時尚產業的基礎認知。

 

What’s different about this course – and what’s special about the study culture at QUT?

這門課程或QUT的學習環境有什麼特別之處?

 

First, BFA tutors tell us they emphasise certain things to create the right kind of study culture. For example, you are encouraged to take risks with your work and tutors stress that they don’t teach Design in terms of right and wrong. Instead, your own unique style – your individual identity – is respected and encouraged.

BFA的老師告訴我們,BFA的師資群十分重視如何創造良好的學習文化。他們鼓勵學生冒險,並且在教授設計課程領導學生跳脫對錯的框架。學生的個人風格、自我特質才是最重要的。

http://www.qut.edu.au

As we said, the course is intensive but the setting for the Bachelors in Fine Art (Fashion) is relaxed, supportive and friendly. Because the aim is for you to develop self-awareness about your own personal sense of style, QUT explains that you’ll always be encouraged to keep reflecting on your creative process. On campus you work in a studio environment – a large open study space with lots of activity and creative energy. This helps you not only to think about your ideas and working methods as an individual – you also engage regularly in group discussions, shared with the whole study group.

為了讓學生培養自我意識、創造出獨特的個人風格,QUT鼓勵學生檢討、反思自己的創作過程。在開放式的大型工作室裡,學生以個人身分發展創作概念及實作步驟,同時也與整個班級進行團體討論。BFA課程雖然緊湊密集,但是也有輕鬆、友善的學習氣氛。

 

OK, now tell me how QUT will improve my fashion skills and technical know-how?

那麼請告訴我QUT如何訓練我的時尚技能及專業技術?

 

You will get going straight away – because right from the first semester you gain key skills. We mentioned the ‘Design Studio’ units – a series of six courses spread over the entire degree. In Semester 1 you begin by learning about the components, principles and processes of contemporary fashion design. You put your knowledge into action by tackling a design brief, together with your first training in fashion pattern-cutting. Then you’ll be using key sewing techniques to manufacture garments. In this way, you’re prepared for Semester 2 when you extend your knowledge into more complex pattern engineering, but also start devising production plans for your garments.

從第一個學期開始你就會接受專業技能訓練,例如同上面提到的工作室作業就是六門分配在整個學程中的系列課程。在第一個學期,你將會從學習關鍵元素、基本知識與近代時尚設計流程開始。接受過首次打版訓練後你必須應用所學提出一份設計大綱,接著運用裁縫技術製作成衣。第二學期將會延伸第一學期的基本訓練,帶你認識更複雜的剪裁工程,同時你也必須開始設計自己的服飾生產計劃。

 

Or you begin with ‘Drawing for Fashion’ in your first semester, starting by examining ways of generating fashion graphics both by hand and using digital technology – vital skills in presenting garments and showing how your fashion collections could evolve. You’ll look at how to show human figures and how to recreate a sense of different fabrics. Then, by your second year, you’ll be ready for a far more in-depth study of Computer Aided Design as it applies to the Fashion industry.

或者,在第一個學期會從「時尚繪畫」課程開始,教授以手繪及數位科技做時尚設計的方法,訓練你呈現自己的作品、展現出系列作品進一步發展的可能性。你會學到如何表現不同體型、繪製材質紋理。到了第二年,你更會深入認識電腦輔助設計如何應用到時尚產業。

 

As with many programs in Australia, the BFA in Fashion at QUT comprises core courses that you must do (like it or not!) and electives, which you can choose yourself. For a really close look at the Bachelor of Fine Art (Fashion), come and see us here at YEC.

如同許多澳洲其他課程,QUT的BFA將核心必修與選修課程結合。如果想要更仔細了解時尚主修美術學士課程,可以與YEC辦公室聯絡。

 

Will I learn enough about the business side? I want to start my own fashion retail business in the future.

我會學到足夠的商務知識嗎? 未來我想要在時尚界創業

 

Yes, the BFA (Fashion) program clearly sees the development of Fashion business acumen as a priority from start to finish.

是的,BFA課程絕對是將培養時尚產業敏銳度放在課程設計上的第一考量。

 

QUT offers several different ways to do your degree, including double degrees like the Bachelors in Business/Bachelors in Fine Art (Fashion). The degree produces creative graduates with sophisticated technical skills in fashion, as well as highly developed knowledge in business.

QUT 提供數種攻讀學位的方式,包括像商務學士/ 時尚主修美術學士的雙學士課程。此學位讓畢業學生同時具備高階時尚專業技術與商務技能。

 

The BFA in Fashion at QUT – theory and practical study together

Is the BFA mostly a practical fashion course? What else do you study?

BFA都是實務操作的課程嗎? 你還可以學到什麼?

 

QUT explain that design work you do within the department is at the heart of your training. But as well as your practical work, and the pieces you create in course units like ‘Design Studio’, you complete core modules in the history and theory surrounding fashion. These studies help develop your understanding of market forces and of how developments worldwide have come to influence the textile and garment design industries. So you might think, for example, about the growth of ethical fashion and textiles business during the past fifty years. Certainly, you must learn how garments are constructed but you also need a good understanding of issues such as ensuring that goods are produced ethically.

QUT強調學生在自己系所的時尚設計作業將是學習核心,但除了設計工作室課程的作業之外,也有將焦點放在時尚歷史發展及理論的核心課程。你可能會認為這些課程就是關於時尚及材質產業在近五十年的發展,但除此之外你也會學到如何確保商品的生產過程符合職業倫理等等議題。

 

But I’m much more interested in the practical side than I am in the theory surrounding fashion – I really want to focus on designing clothes.

比起理論我還是對實務操作比較有興趣 – 我想要專心設計服飾

http://www.qut.edu.au

You are not alone! The majority of undergraduates want practical experience most of all. But remember that you cannot be quite so selective at this stage: a Bachelors degree has to be comprehensive, covering practice and theory. This is true wherever you study – it’s one thing that distinguishes vocational study from what you need to do at university.

你並不孤單! 多數本科系學生都想要專注在實務操作。但是記住: 在這個階段你還不能對課程太挑剔,本科系課程必須廣泛涉及實務及理論兩方。這點在各個科系都相同,也是區分職訓與大學課程的特點之一。

 

How does a theory side support me and help me become a great practitioner?

理論層面如何幫助我成為優良設計師呢?

First, keep in mind that the less practical side of your course can inform your creative work, taking your designs in directions you might not otherwise have found. It’s this kind of learning experience that can set university study apart.

不屬於實務作業的課程會是你的創意來源,也許能將你的設計作品帶往全新的方向。從學生在理論課程方面的學習經驗更是可以看出一間大學的特色。

 

When you focus on history of fashion it will challenge you to think what has already influenced your eye and imagination. Making the connection between the global spread of trading empires, and the sudden availability of new fabrics or dyes from around the world, you could see how traditions from Asian culture became stylistic influences on key moments in European fashion history.

當你研究時尚的發展史時,你將會反思自己是如何接收時代潮流的影響。從貿易大國的國際拓展進程到全世界的新材質或染料資源,你可以看到亞洲文化是如何對歐洲時尚發展造成風格上的影響。

 

A course at QUT like ‘Unspeakable Beauty 1: A History of Dress and Fashion’ asks you to examine how fashion developed as a medium linked to social class, and to notions of gender that may seem incredible today.

QUT的課程如「不可言說的美 1: 洋裝與時尚發展史」將會帶你重新檢視時尚與社會階層的連結,以及在今日看來令人感到不可思議的性別概念。

 

How does QUT see the interaction of theory and practice?

QUT如何看待實務與理論間的關係?

 

They echo what we’ve said above in that the historical and conceptual side encourages you to see your own practical creative work in a wider context, and they say this occurs in ways that are easy to link with today’s real-world of fashion.

QUT同上述所說,認同歷史及概念層面的研究幫助學生在發展實務作業時擁有更深入的背景知識。QUT也表示這會幫助學生進一步接觸當今的時尚世界。

 

QUT say that this is in itself a form of business knowledge because after all, if you possess a thorough knowledge of fashion precedents (styles from years gone by), you may become great at recognising not only where new designs have come from, but also at sensing how trends could develop in the future – that’s an essential skill if you want to run your own fashion retail business, or to work in fashion merchandising in the future.

QUT表示,理論層面的功課也是一種商務知識。深入了解歷代時尚潮流典範除了能讓你學會辨認新的產品設計從何發展之外,也能使你擁有預測未來潮流的能力—無論想要開創自己的時尚品牌或銷售時尚產品,這門技能都是必須的。

 

This comprehensive mix of practice and theory lets you become a more rounded professional in your chosen industry. It can give you a competitive edge later on.

理論與實作的綜合應用將會讓你在業界成為更全面的專業人士,也能增加你的個人競爭力。
