Want to educate yourself in fashion and textile design? Are you looking for an education that encourages an experimental and exploratory approach? Then the Master’s Programme in Fashion and Textile Design might be the education for you. In the school’s laboratories, you get the opportunity to test many of your design ideas.


The laboratories at the Swedish School of Textiles are well-equipped and staffed by highly skilled people with extensive experience in textile production. Here, the students work as independently as possible, and during the first semester of the programme optional introductory courses are given on how to handle the equipment.
Students apply to this programme by submitting an individual project, and then they work on developing that same project during the entire programme. The education places great emphasis on artistic work, and teachers as well as supervisors and technicians encourage experimental, investigating work that pushes the boundaries of the textile field.
The first half of the last year is devoted to a degree project, and after that there are three choices for the rest of the school year: further develop the degree project, take a preparatory research course, or internship.
Since the Borås region is a textile region, there are good opportunities to collaborations and internships at nearby companies, but many students seek out internships at companies and fashion houses around Europe.
The entire programme is based on research, and the students gain insights in current research in the field. Several of the lectures and workshops included in the programme are held by researchers and doctoral students associated with the Swedish School of Textiles. Through their projects and analyses, the students learn to relate to current research and what may develop the field.
Since Borås is a relatively small city, most of the students move there to study. This gives extra opportunities to bond with the classmates, which can also stimulate the creative work even further.
After graduation, many of the students move on to being employed at large or small-scale fashion companies in Sweden or abroad, while others set up their own freelance business or continue studying for a PhD.
The Master’s Programme in Textile and Fashion Design has two specialisations: Textile design and Fashion design.
