First Semester of 2013 has been a busy time for 3rd Year students in our Digital Textile Design and Industry Course. The BATD program has strong and valued relationships with our Industry Partners and we work closely with them to ensure that graduates have relevant Digital Textile Design skills when entering the workforce.

We had the pleasure of working with Country Road again this year. Students were asked to develop a range of on trend print repeats for Country Road Accessories and Fashion Departments known as “The Iconics” range. Working to tight deadlines and creating “on brand” designs was a key challenge.
