    A fantastic activity to challenge and engage students working in Technology Mandatory and/or Design and Technologies.

    Students can complete this task from home during the COVID-19 pandemic or alternatively students can complete this task in the classroom. This task can be easily printed out and given to students. This task can be differentiated for individual students needs at the discretion of the teacher.

    Students have the opportunity to follow a Design Brief and create their own clothing label. There is a business plan included to extend students critical and creative thinking.

    There are a range of core items for the students to design including a zip jacket, hoodie, hat, t-shirt and tote bag. Students are given creative control when designing their own brand and provide students with the opportunity to participate in a design challenge they can use outside the classroom.
