“ Master the shaping and sizing industry with bespoke grading methods I’ve spent years refining ” – Thuy Nguyen


Facilitated by Thuy Nguyen, QUT Creative Enterprise Australia’s Fashion Development Manager, this fashion workshop is designed to give participants a clearer practical understanding of grading to ensure proportions and aesthetic values of designs are maintained.

Participants will be introduced to the practice of analysing a design and specifically allocating increments to suit the purpose and style, the ideal target market it was intended for and the sizing structure chosen. Comparisons will also be made with the current standardised grading and evaluation of the outcomes.
