2023 Student work

Design and Comms of Fur Free

Students were asked to challenge the fashion industry by teaching new design philosophies and communication strategies for professionals, consumers or students.

Deliverables included a storyboard of the process of designing a fashion collection and an innovative communication strategy proposing an alternative way without fur. Key messages needed to be developed, target audiences set and practical outputs linking to ACTAsia’s annual forum had to be achieved (such as speaker selection, key visuals etc). 

Themes of compassion, environment, humans/society and care for animals had to be incorporated and the fashion industry, design process and communication methods to be critically analysed with a proposition for a meaningful way forward.

Keeping in mind that the consumer market should be focused on Millennials and Generation Z, the communication strategy needed to connect with and maximise the opportunity for change within these target groups. The aim was to show examples of alternatives and a new way to a more compassionate and caring future.
