INNOVATION // NEW CONCEPTS

    These design concepts are innovations as they have been applied successfully on the market. Some fashion designers experiment with new
    digital technologies to integrate electronic components into the garments, which we refer to as wearable technology. Others test new materials
    that make the clothing durable and attractive, worn longer and thereby more sustainable.

Fashion Empowerment
New training module

The Course is based on the concept of social design. In this context, design is seen as a methodology of creative problem solving where the attributes of design process are employed to facilitate social needs. In Papanek´s words, it is design for the “real world".
The aim of the course is to open a social perspective to fashion design.  
The fashion students are encouraged to expand their notion of clothing design and adopt a more inclusive and socially meaningful approach to their practise.
The students will apply user-centred methods, such as co-design, and design a collection for a group of their choice that they consider as marginalized in the mainstream fashion market.  They will report of the process.
