Abstract

Globalization has created a new norm that affects all aspects of our daily lives. We may have noticed that the fashion industry in our time has not only become more global but also more knowledge-based. The new realities and shifts in the job market have fundamentally changed our fashion education system. With an increasingly diverse student body, universities are requested to rethink their long-standing philosophies towards the emerging paradigm. There has been much discussion about ways in which more advanced systems can support the development of fashion education internationalization where there is an urgent need to nurture internationalized talents. Hence, with this study, the researcher intends to explore the operationalization practice of curriculum internationalization within and across the discipline of fashion design, while at the same time identifying potentially effective strategies to internationalize the fashion design curriculum. By applying the defined theory of curriculum internationalization and translating it into new practices, demonstrating the connection between the theory of implementation and the reality of implementation practice. The researcher hopes that the positive and practical results of this study might offer a valuable reference point and inspire other educators from different backgrounds to better explore the theory and practice related to curriculum internationalization in the future.
