Fashion Design entails the ability to decipher what is ‘contemporary’ and translate it into meaningful and visionary manifestations. A design perspective in fashion means investigating different social, cultural and environmental phenomena which together with a sound experimentation and a clever manipulation foster a unique creative identity, where the essential components of Fashion: ‘Poetic Charm’ and ‘Beauty’ are always preserved.
The Master in Fashion Design combines fashion studies and design thinking with extensive study and practice. Students will be taught to question, refine and strengthen their individual creative vision as well as to tackle the challenge of designing for existing fashion brands. Students will be engaged in the exploration of other disciplines to produce outcomes that combine conceptualization, textile manipulation, garment prototyping, sustainability, branding, visual storytelling and business intelligence.
They will learn to understand the complexity of the fashion system, gaining a mature awareness of the various professions throughout its value chain, understanding that the value of fashion is not printed on the surface of a garment but it is in its function, wearability, inclusivity and ability to adapt to our contemporary needs.
The programme is directed at candidates who have a first level degree and/or professional experience in Fashion Design. The programme is also open to candidates with a background in other disciplines if strongly motivated to carry out in-depth research into the programme subject area and submit a rich portfolio able to illustrate the different phases of the fashion design process.
With a combination of in-class theory and valuable on-site practice at cutting-edge companies, students will get the knowledge, confidence and insight to pursue creative roles in the fashion industry.Discover more here
