Description:

Shared Talent is a people-centred learning process, inspired by sustainability thinking and values and applied to fashion design and development. The focus is placed on how the students learn and how they consider the impacts of their work as part of the development into what they produce. As the principle investigator in this work, I offer experience drawn from over twenty years designing high profile womenswear collections, in many different locations. This is complimented by having worked with stu-dents inside and outside of sustainable fashion education. What I have been a part of with Shared Talent is a gently evolving gathering of experiences, relying on the receptivity of the participants and its obser-vations are non-generalisable, so it does not seek absolutes on ways to teach and learn. It does however offer an alternative to most current fashion based course programmes that take the hierarchical approach usually associated with fashion production into heterarchical experiences that emphasise the value of each person’s contribution by giving it more prominence in the work.
