Fashion Design · Undergraduate
Fashion Textile Design aims to train textile designers; creatives who think, design and create fabrics, prints and weaves. A textile designer is someone who creates stripes, patterns, colours and checks, and anticipates the work of the designer in the ateliers of fashion houses. Ranging from fibre through to yarn and actual fabrics, this course offers technological innovation for the industry today, and a dialogue with the most avant-garde expressions of the design world, all while keeping an eye on the history of a profession that is the foundation of contemporary fashion.
The curriculum includes: fashion design; textile science; fashion trend forecasting; textile design; fashion embellishment for print development and embroidery.
The course also includes: a visit to the Gucci and Ferragamo museums; an international guest lecture by a fashion industry expert; a personal project; and an individual interview with a senior teacher from the course to assess your potential and further opportunities to continue in this field of study. The whole working process and final projects will be documented in a design book, adding value to the portfolio of any fashion designer.
Participation in this course is an excellent initial stage of preparation in the fashion business, a course of study that may continue with the 4-year undergraduate degree in Fashion Design or Fashion Technology or the 9-month master’s degree in Fashion Design or Collection Design.
