Master in Fashion Design
The Master in Fashion Design equips students with the tools and know-how they will need to develop every stage of the design process, all the way from a creative idea to the final collection. The academic journey will also emphasise the importance of the product’s communicative and strategic value in a brand context.
Throughout the course, students will gain insight regarding the history of fashion and its background, pattern-making, prints, drawing, experimenting in knitwear and confection workshops, modelling, and production processes. They will be learning to apply the theoretical and practical fundamentals of Fashion Design to produce coherent collections inspired by a specific concept and target.
The fashion market is a rich ecosystem where a multitude of factors coexist and interrelate. It is also linked to the historical evolution of styles, artistic movements and socio-cultural and financial changes, all of which have an inevitable impact on society.
Project of the Master in Fashion Design
– To approach the world of fashion from a professional viewpoint, from its many aspects, in order to understand the complex processes involved in any fashion collection and the production of items of clothing.
– To acquire the essential techniques and theories needed to develop fashion projects: a knowledge of the history of fashion and its context, pattern making, fabric printing, sketching, experimentation in knitting and sewing workshops, modelling and the mastery of production processes.
– To apply this basic, theoretical and practical knowledge of fashion design to creating coherent collections, starting from a concept and a target.
– Students who come from similar disciplines will have the ability to use their previous knowledge and apply it to the skills and tools of the fashion industry.
The degree has a strong practical side, which intends to foster the creativity and personal style of the student, from the inception to the final product realisation. For this reason, it is divided in modules, which include a practical part with educational visits, group work and conferences by professionals, combined with the project part and work assessment. For each module there will be a test of the knowledge and skills acquired.
A key factor in the methodology of the course is for all the students to express their individual sensitivity as designers. The Final Project of the Master, which brings together all the knowledge gained on the course, is done individually. Each student must create and produce his or her own fashion collection, from the concept to the finished items, including their presentation.
Graduates in disciplines related to design, fine arts and social sciences, and graduates and professionals from other fields wanting to be introduced professionally to the field of fashion design.
Students who have previous studies in Fashion Design are also welcome. In a personal interview, they will be informed of the projects to be undertaken and any possible “repeats” that they could find on the Master.
On finishing the course, depending on the student’s profile and experience on entry, the possible career opportunities are:
– Design companies and studios with multidisciplinary teams.
– Independent designers.
– The media.
Each master’s course has the advice of a specialist coordinator in the field, who plays an active role in developing the study plan and the content of the course in cooperation with the IED Master teaching department.
The coordinator also assists in the hiring of specific teachers from the sector, as well as relations with companies and institutions in the course’s knowledge area.
