Project Context

Following 3 intensive weeks of specialist projects you will have learnt many skills and gained new knowledge. This project gives you an opportunity to reflect and evaluate on the experience before the progress tutorials and before you are joined by students from the diagnostic pathway. It is designed to look at the importance of research and to give an understanding of the different ways you can progress including in the long term for further study or in industry. The emphasis is on self-diagnosis and gaining a clear understanding of the structures and mechanisms in place for recording your thinking such as your research and reflection.

Project Description

This project is an opportunity to re work some previous projects. Look back over your last 3 projects. Look at areas where there is potential to develop the project and take it in a new direction – a completely different outcome. It can be a fashion or textiles outcome, in the broadest sense. As this project will focus on looking back over your work, research and new research will be important. Because of this, you will be re-introduced to important members of staff that can help you gain a knowledge of and an ability to use research including

### Identity

Identity is the conception, qualities, beliefs, and expressions that make a person (self-identity) or group. Identity may be distinguished from identification; identity is a label, whereas identification refers to the classifying act itself. Identity is thus best construed as being both relational and contextual, while the act of identification is best viewed as inherently processual.That process can be creative or destructive.

A psychological identity relates to self-image (one's mental model of oneself), self-esteem, and individuality. Consequently, Weinreich gives the definition"A person's identity is defined as the totality of one's self-construal, in which how one construes oneself in the present expresses the continuity between how one construes oneself as one was in the past and how one construes oneself as one aspires to be in the future"
