Fashion design and textiles for fashion has an international profile founded in a unique combination of artistic development, professional practice and academic research.
It is our aim to both enforce and challenge the Danish design tradition within a modern global awareness in order to encourage a personal engagement and point of view in students’ design work.
Students specialize in womenswear, menswear, textile knit and textile print for fashion and are given the possibility to aim their design skills towards the fashion industry, tone their studies in a more conceptual and artistic direction or towards entrepreneurship.
Responsible production and consumption are the core of the program – from considerations over materials, circular economy and CSR to gender issues and the creative development of form while still maintaining the artistic and innovative fashion edge.
We provide the students with in-depth analytical, reflective and communicative skills as well as a distinctive combination of detailed knowledge of design methods and - theory combined with hands-on material and technical experience.
The study environment is concentrated around the “Fashion and Textile Labs” where students supported by the staff develop advanced craftsmanship and technological skills. Work placements secure the students professional business awareness, working skills and the development of a professional network.
