The Programme: overview

Starting from A.Y. 2021/22, the MA aims to develop professional figures capable of managing the creative processes associated with fashion textile design, from woven to knitted fabrics, including innovation, sustainability, and design-thinking-related aspects.

The programme, which is supported by strong relations with the Italian production sector, offers theoretical, technical and experimental lessons applied to projects, providing students with in-depth knowledge of the textile discipline and its expression in the fashion and art industries.

Over the MA, students will have the opportunity to:

  • Evaluate the fashion phenomenon as an articulated visual language, with self-awareness in terms of skills and style, interpreting and translating ideas into high-quality projects
  • Use complex methodologies to show the ability to create articulate solutions for manifold projects, starting from research and analysis, to the design process and its representation and communication, while showing acquaintance with a wide number of applications, knowledge and skills
  • Learn an integrated approach to the textile world, rooted in the Italian design culture, and explore the values and needs of a new, global humanity, as well as of its sustainable relation to nature and environment
