Paris College of Art joins forces with MakeSense in this one-year Master’s program (MA) in Social Impact that equips “change agents” with the practical know-how to successfully lead design projects that will engender positive change on a societal level. In 2015, the United Nations adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. This agenda cited that, “for the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you.” The MA in Design for Social Impact is one response to the United Nation’s call to action, and trains the designers of tomorrow to tackle issues of development, whether at a local, national or international level. The essential question posed by the MA in Design for Social Impact is: How can design change the world? More specifically, students may address questions such as: What tools can we design to improve the rates of recycling in our building? What service design can we adopt to reduce food waste and increase the number of free meal recipients for a supermarket chain? How can a city redesign public space to increase the amount of physical exercise its senior citizens get and thereby decrease risks for injuries and health costs? In the MA in Design for Social Impact, Paris College of Art and MakeSense combine theoretical instruction with hands-on projects to contribute to solving real-world current challenges through design solutions....

One year Masters of Arts (MA) in Fashion Design: New Materials & Technologies

Paris College Of Art
Campus Full time 1 year September 2017 France Paris

The Master of Arts (M.A.) in Fashion Design proposed by PCA, focused on new materials and technologies, is a one-year program aimed at equipping designers with the knowledge and skills required to make the most of emerging new technologies and materials. [+]

The Master of Arts (M.A.) in Fashion Design proposed by PCA, focused on new materials and technologies, is a one-year program aimed at equipping 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 of ready-to-wear 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 or creating connected garments. France hosts many companies specializing in innovative materials (Lytess is a pioneer in cosmetotextiles, which are textiles containing a substance or preparation intended to be released permanently on different parts of the epidermis) and connectivity (Cityzen Sciences was the first to launch a connected T-shirt), and we will draw on this local expertise for our Professional Practice Workshop Series. 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 (not only technical gear),...
