Module Description This is a Critical and Contextual Studies module, which will introduce you to fashion history and contexts, and help you to understand how these issues inform and underpin Fashion Communication and Branding more broadly. This module will provide you with the foundations of fashion research, critical thinking, and contextual studies, and will help you to articulate your ideas orally, visually, and through written text. The content will explore global approaches to fashion, and will help you to consider fashion through industry, style, dress, the body, as well as fashion business, media, communication, and branding. The module will help you to investigate the importance of fashion history in relation to key concepts such as gender, class, and sustainability, and help you to position fashion within a broader social and contextual framework. These concepts will serve as a basis for subsequent modules at Levels 5 and 6, and will provide you with support for engaging with the fundamental skills for future Critical and Contextual Studies modules. You will be taught through lectures, seminars, and workshops, as well as field trips, study support, independent reading, and seminar activities. By the end of this module, you will be able to understand and contextualise your own position as a creative and critical fashion researcher and practitioner, and be confident in employing critical thinking, research, and communication skills. 3.
