The study programme of the Master in Sustainable Fashion Design shapes a fashion designer who is able to enter the product area of luxury businesses with a strong sensitivity towards eco-sustainable and ethical fashion. The curriculum provides a general comprehension of creative and design aspects as well as of production and industrialisation, such as understanding how to plan and design fashion collections, merchandising, costing, and production, and ensuring an ethical procedure at every stage beginning with the materials and planning.
The course aims for students to acquire a range of skills which will allow them to follow all of the phases linked to design processes (briefing, defining trends and targets, research, choosing materials, the merchandising plan, product design, prototypes, costs, samples, and production procedures), leading up to the creation of a professional portfolio. The final objective is to provide the knowledge needed for students to be able to create fashion and luxury products which respect the ever-more fundamental principles of green fashion.
