FM FASHION MENTORSHIP/why_fashionmasters.png

Our tutors at FashionMasters are like private mentors because each one of them is active in the fashion industry and therefore engaged in the business of helping you succeed in a boutique-learning environment. From fashion designers who run their own brands to buyers, stylists, image-consultants, PR executives and social media managers and bloggers, our academics are fashion and business entrepreneurs who work for some of the world’s most reputable brands. Coupled with our industry partners who also coach students through internships, guest lectures and “role shadowing”, this gives FashionMasters’ programs the edge in order to offer a very practice-led approach to undertaking a degree program.

 

FM INDUSTRY ENGAGEMENT

We offer a contemporary and dynamic approach to benchmarking our degree so that the opportunities for your success in the marketplace are maximised:

 

INDUSTRY PARTNERS

From industry legends like Christian Dior, Carla Zampatti and Collette Dinnigan to more emerging local stars like Andy Henson, Gareth Moody and Emma Mulholland, we collaborate with the business leaders that shape the fashion industry in the changing global marketplace.

 

LIVE PROJECTS

As innovative research is a primary function of higher learning, our industry mentors work with our Bachelor of Fashion & Business students in third year on real-time briefs and simulated projects. Students are assessed by industry professionals on practice-led projects which can have social, economic and even political impact in the real world.

 

 

GUEST LECTURERS & FIELD TRIPS

In the boutique learning environment offered at FashionMasters, guest lectures and field trips to meet designers and other professionals in situ are embedded into the curriculum. In this way we are able to provide students with opportunities to make sense of classroom theory by a parallel experience in the actual marketplace. This stimulating pedagogic approach occurs at least once per subject, each semester.

 

EVENT COLLABORATION

Collaborating with BeautyMasters for makeup and HeadMasters for hair, FashionMasters students are given the opportunity to work at industry events to gain experience and build their portfolio.

FashionMasters students have worked at the following events:

- Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (MSFW)

- Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA), Sydney.

- Fashion Exposed, Sydney

- Moral Fairground Fashion Show

- Melbourne School of Fashion Graduate Showcase

- Victorian Training Awards

With brand new state-of the-art facilities in slick Sydney and stylish Melbourne, and both campuses located in the hearts of Australia’s most vivacious CBDs, FashionMasters reputation as an industry-relevant fashion program continues to grow. This is witnessed by the faculty’s own edgy in-house magazine, “F”: Creative Intelligence by FashionMasters; soon-to-be launched in 2015.
