Fashion Design Major Project Concept
This year Raffles College design students have re-acquainted with the modernist revolution of the early 20th century. Modernism revolted against Western aesthetic traditions, especially the convention of Renaissance perspective that authoritatively described and insisted a one world view. Via cubism, political revolutions, scientific advances, and new theories of perception, the modernist introduced multiple perspectives into their creative practice and shifted the traditional western-centric paradigm of art and design towards a radically new universal vision. Through a re-immersion into this period of experimental creativity, our students had re-conceptualised modernism and refreshed their awareness of contemporary design perspective and practice.
