This paper presents the instructional design and development process for a fashion design education programme promoting creativity in a VR (Virtual Reality) environment. We designed the instructional model prototype based on the R2D2 (Recursive, Reflective, Design and Development) instructional design model and the creative thinking process model. The VR environment supported the design sessions, including the collaborative exploration in concept generation. We developed a feasible instructional model prototype using a VR environment through constant cooperative inquiry among instructional design team members. Furthermore, we conducted a multidimensional evaluation to obtain more pedagogical insights to develop an instructional model. Consequently, we could provide new insights into possibilities of using VR in collaborative exploration, promoting creativity, in future fashion design education.
