Students are tasked with creating a project convincing the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) that their chosen designer/design house should win a lifetime achievement award. Students go beyond a biographical research project to delve into the impact that the designer/design house has had on the fashion industry.
This project could be presented using paper or posters, if computers are not available. This project could be done individually, in partners, or in small groups.
The attached assignment gives information for citing using APA format, as well as some links for researching, and names of some designers (Canadian designers are highlighted in the list of designers).
