Textiles and Fashion Design

The doctoral education in Textiles and fashion Design is focused on deepening the understanding of the interaction between analysis and synthesis in the design process, theoretically as well as practically, as a basis for developing design methodology, design technology, and design programmes, which requires a practice-based approach; for design, through design.

The development of methodology, programme, and techniques requires a critical, experimental, artistic work. An in-depth understanding of the expressiveness of materials, techniques, and intended use also requires experimental, artistic work.

The education is focused on artistic design research in the field of textile and fashion, with the opportunity to further specialise in the following:

  • Textile design; to develop, specialise and critically highlight the artistic foundation for design as a business and craft, with a focus on the expressiveness of textile materials and techniques as in building up and expressing textile products and environments.

  • Fashion design; to develop, specialise and critically highlight the artistic foundation for design as a business and craft, with a focus on the expressiveness of garments as in dressing and expressing people.

  • Textile interaction design; to develop, specialise, and critically highlight the artistic foundation for design as a business and craft, with a focus on the expressiveness of the use of textiles as in defining and expressing textile products and environments.
