О курсе

Among all objects of design, our clothes are the most universal and intimate. Like other kinds of design, fashion thrives on productive tensions between form and function, automation and craftsmanship, standardization and customization, universality and self-expression, and pragmatism and utopian vision. It exists in the service of others, and it can have profound consequences—social, political, cultural, economic, and environmental. Fashion as Design focuses on a selection of more than 70 garments and accessories from around the world, ranging from kente cloth to jeans to 3D-printed dresses. Through these garments, we’re going to look closely at what we wear, why we wear it, how it’s made, and what it means. You’ll hear directly from a range of designers, makers, historians, and others working with clothing every day—and, in some cases, reinventing it for the future. Studio visits, interviews, and other resources introduce the history and development of each garment and their changing uses, meanings, and impact over time. Course Learning Objectives: Develop critical tools to appreciate and contextualize fashion design—from everyday clothing to couture garments—through many different perspectives. Trace the history, development, and impact of garments over time, and explore how they may be reinvented. Investigate garments through multiple lenses including politics, identity, and economics. Understand more about the lifecycle of clothing, from its design and production to its marketing, distribution, and consumption. Better comprehend the choices you make about fashion with respect to the visual language of dress, individual and collective identities, and issues such as labor practices, sustainability, and body politics....

I really enjoyed the course. It opened my eyes to so many issues facing the world - and how small moves can motivate change. It also made me look at my wardrobe differently - putting new meaning behind pieces I never really thought about.

Thank you for opening my eyes to the purposes behind our wardrobe choices. In the past year, my fashion choices have been, understatedly, limited. Can't wait to enjoy the statement of personal expression that fashion can offer.

The Course is amazing! So eye-opening and complete, the course compiles from the "birth" of items until the lifecycles of some products and approaches subjects such as sustainability, identity, culture, design. I truly recommend.

I learned a lot from this course, and it had one of the more active discussion groups I've seen in a Coursera course. I love that it went into the details of the exhibition and into how the exhibition was conceived and curated.

T​his was really fun and insightful. The week on Lifecycles was something that really stood out, all the items were historically significant. I do feel more confident in talking about and understanding the art side of fashion.

It was such an incredible course. It's amazing how a simple garment has so much history behind it. Every time I wear an item I will remember where it came from, the materials used and who wore it.

Very satisfied!
