Theory meets practice at creative showcases

Monday, January 23, 2017 - 11:57

Creative works by fashion, design and professional communication students shone at end-of-semester showcases in Hanoi and Saigon South campuses last week.

The three programs from the Centre of Communication & Design emphasise the importance of displaying student work, and throughout the year organise showcases where students can transfer knowledge and skills from the classroom into real world situations.

The three recent showcases Advertising industry practice, Product ranging and product development, and Print is not dead attracted many visitors. Viewers were not only impressed by the projects’ visual aesthetics but also by their practical applications and meaningful messages.

Fashion students from the 'Product Ranging' course present their contemporary collections of Vietnam-based brands.

All collections take inspiration from the fashion decade of their choice, ranging from the 1920's to the 1990's.

The students and the Mark Your Wall team discuss the fashion garments that embrace the startup’s artworks. The collaboration was introduced in the ‘Product Development' course as a work-integrated learning project.

The 'In A Twisted World' project aims to make adults realise how hurtful and damaging their words can be to children. It is among three projects about children's rights displayed at the Advertising Industry Practice showcase.
