The course enables students to learn about entrepreneurship and innovation in both theory and practice, with specific attention to contemporary and upcoming digital outcomes and markets. Students are encouraged to examine the past and challenge the present, to have inventive, assertive ideas that question contemporary agendas. The course provides the skills, opportunities, and freedom to put those ideas into practice. The program allows for an opportunity to navigate and experiment with both traditional (still/moving image) and emerging digital media and technologies (3D/AI), using a variety of graphic design skills and platforms and considering mixed reality elements.

This course is part of the Fashion Styling study pathways, with fashion styling as the core subject. Participants specialize in the chosen area of interest (Creative Direction), completing the course with a distinct professional profile. The course is suitable for creative and practical students with entrepreneurial acumen. The development of the course leads students to learn how to manage self-initiated creative briefs, delivered and pursued from both a practical and academic perspective. The course encourages students to examine diversity, social responsibility, and sustainability and apply critical thinking across these important themes to their practice. Through teaching, industry simulated practice, specialist research, and collaborative work, students are encouraged to think differently by using the fashion industry as a lens to examine the history and work towards building a more sustainable and ethical environment in the future.
