Best Part time Masters of Arts in Fashion 2017/2018. This one-year program, focused on new materials and technologies, equips designers with the knowledge and skills required to make the most of emerging new technologies and materials. New materials are being developed at a fast rate, enabling garments to do more than clothe: they can measure temperature, transmit information about the wearer’s physiological state, provide stimulation, release compounds into the skin, etc. These materials are often used for sportswear and underwear, but they can serve a purpose outside of technical wear. The goal of the program is to encourage and enable designers to incorporate them into their design, whether it be men’s, women’s or children’s wear. Students will also learn to work with new technologies, such as using 3D printing to produce a garment, creating connected garments, or incorporating LED lights in their designs. France hosts many companies specializing in innovative materials and connectivity, and we will draw on this local expertise for our Professional Practice Workshop Series. Students also attend the international Première Vision and Avantex shows for fashion professionals. The program combines technical knowledge and principles of design research and theory. Studio classes and workshops conducted by professionals from relevant fields (materials experts, engineers, designers) emphasize the mastery of new materials and technologies and their incorporation into a wide range of designs, while theory-based and methodology courses help students develop their personal creative visions. Students with a background in fashion design or tailoring will be well-suited to enter the... [-]

Master in Design Cultures

 

The MA programme Design Cultures is all about the study of product design, graphic design and fashion in a broad diverse cultural context. The focus is on both the designer as ‘author’ and the complex chain of production, sale, consumption and criticism in which design operates and derives its many different meanings. Design Cultures restores design as the core object of academic interest without detracting from the cultural and material context in which it operates. The programme combines a generalist, comparative approach to design with a clear focus on history and theory. 

 

 

Career Prospects

The Design Cultures course is taught in English. It is an internationally oriented course which has close ties with real-life practice. Besides studying the theoretical and historical background of design, students get a chance to do their graduation project in association with key players in the design world.
