This studio course is a mandatory junior core for the Integrated Design program's Fashion Area of Study students. In this course, students will continue to explore their personal interests as well as the competencies they would like to develop in relation to clothes, fashion, identity, media, and performance. Students in this course will develop an aspect of their work that needs more, in depth, support. IDC Interfaces: Love is a fully self-directed studio that requires a high degree of self-motivation. Students, for the first time in their Fashion Area of Study core sequence, will design their own design brief. The design brief will demonstrate a high level of innovation, translating interests, along with the acquisition of certain skills and competencies, into a constructive project. The emphasis of this class will be on structuring and mastering the students' own work process. Students are encouraged to find an internship that will support both their project and the development of identified skills and competencies.
