This studio core is for sophomore students who have developed their work within the Integrated Design program's Fashion Area of Study. Students continue their studies of body, garments and identity developed in [Un]Fashion, and will transform the ideas, propositions and designs into wearable clothing, accessories, and/or magazines to be sold or exchanged. Students will work in small teams, each individual contributing various skills and competencies, to develop one prototype and one actual sales event. Each group is encouraged to invite lecturers, propose site visits and readings to support the class projects. Small business owners will be invited to class to speak about the challenges and successes that shaped their businesses. The class will question existing modes of exchange and propose alternatives, focus on how to work in teams effectively, and use different feedback systems to evaluate both team and individual performance. *This course previously ran under the name ' IDC Systems: Being Singular Plural'.
