The Master of Arts in Fashion and Textile Design is an intensive two years project-based degree. In producing and documenting works related directly or indirectly to Fashion, students are expected to produce and document a body of works including fashion design, textiles, visual and written storytelling, photography, graphics, costumes, millinery. The program’s main courses, taught by leading fashion professionals, rely heavily on lab experience. While in most schools, industry professionals have the role of visiting professors, in this program they lead a full design mentorship experience, monitoring and guiding the development of each student’s individual skills.
