Abstract

The purpose of this study is to analyze the past trends and suggest new interdisciplinary ways and directions in creative scholarship that contribute to the larger academic dialogue. It is also to position creative practice in design as a tool to advance problem-based research and research through practice (Bye, 2010) in clothing and textile design scholarship. By analyzing the trends over the past 16 years, themes such as target markets, design techniques, sustainability, technology, functional clothing were identified. The study examines trends and gaps in creative practice, and increases engagement and productivity of design scholars who are seeking guidance in framing their future creative practices in interdisciplinary ways.
