This one-year program, focused on new materials and technologies, equips designers with the knowledge and skills required to make the most of emerging new technologies and materials. New materials are being developed at a fast rate, enabling garments to do more than clothe: they can measure temperature, transmit information about the wearer’s physiological state, provide stimulation, release compounds into the skin, etc. These materials are often used for sportswear and underwear, but they can serve a purpose outside of technical wear. The goal of the program is to encourage and enable designers to incorporate them into their design, whether it be men’s, women’s or children’s wear. Students will also learn to work with new technologies, such as using 3D printing to produce a garment, creating connected garments, or incorporating LED lights in their designs. France hosts many companies specializing in innovative materials and connectivity, and we will draw on this local expertise for our Professional Practice Workshop Series. Students also attend the international Première Vision and Avantex shows for fashion professionals.The program combines technical knowledge and principles of design research and theory. Studio classes and workshops conducted by professionals from relevant fields (materials experts, engineers, designers) emphasize the mastery of new materials and technologies and their incorporation into a wide range of designs, while theory-based and methodology courses help students develop their personal creative visions.
