The Master in Fashion Technology and Wearables sets up an experimental research environment to provide students with the critical and innovative approach needed within the fashion industry that is emerging.
The program encourages self development and reflection supported by innovative teaching design methodologies. New perspectives to smart and advanced materials, digital fabrication, bio-textiles and circular design will be explored by means of practice-based research.
The program recognizes the need for a more ethical approach to fashion, one that carefully considers the human and environmental dimension of the industry, its materiality and its power to create dynamic identities and expressive forms of the human body.
– Develop an innovative and dynamic learning environment that encourages critical, ethical and aesthetic responses.
– Provide discussion on the current socio-cultural and economic fashion context to anticipate future needs.
