Design, create, and develop style: building a career in Fashion Design
The Fashion Design Programme provides participants with the techniques to design and create menswear or womenswear, while responding to changing needs in the international fashion and luxury industries. Fashion designers are the inspiration for creative ideas and new trends, not only in clothing, but also in fabric development. They create collections based on an informed analysis of materials and fabrics in connection with art, design, creativity, and fashion. Starting with skills in sketching and drawing, this course moves on to address key notions and techniques in fashion design and fabric and clothing manufacturing, as well as cultural studies in the history of dress, and the fashion system. Working directly from their own illustrated ideas participants progress on to collection design and garment making; selecting the most appropriate materials, analysing fabrics, applying draping and pattern cutting techniques, and final garment construction. Participants gain a solid foundation in developing ideas through research, and are encouraged to apply critical thinking to their own design development.
Structured in four distinct levels or ‘blocks’, participants can choose when to build on their experience by progressing from one level to another, giving them complete control on their own progress and achievement. On successful completion of all levels participants will have gained a solid base in fashion design and garment construction to enable them to enter the industry, or to progress further in their studies to a higher level of comprehension and skill. The course is aimed at candidates who have the ambition to become professional fashion designers, or who are looking to enter the fashion design and creative industries.
Fashion design 1 (2 ‘blocks’ of 12 weeks)
The first part of the programme starts with an overview of sketching and drawing techniques, pattern cutting basics, and the principles of art and dress in history. Participants then move on to acquiring and developing skills to design collections based on an informed analysis of body proportion, looking at the influences of art and culture on design, fabrics, garment construction and researching ideas.
Fashion design 2 (2 ‘blocks’ of 12 weeks)
This second and final phase of the programme further progresses in collection design, where participants fully understand and apply their acquired expertise to their own designs and collection projects. They work on a final collection of designs, relevant to a realistic and contemporary design brief. The project results will be demonstrated in an individual fashion collection portfolio that participants can present to eventual prospective employers.
Alongside a solid base in fashion design and garment construction, at the end of the course participants will have gained familiarity with the international network of contacts, contexts, and opportunities that surrounds the vibrant world of fashion. Fashion designers can work for private labels or in collaboration with national and international fashion houses and style studios, designing collections for womenswear and menswear, while keeping an eye on new evolutions in fashion design.
Participants will be awarded an Istituto Marangoni Certificate
Progressing Abroad • European Study Option1
Participants have the opportunity to further excel in design, creativity and research, by completing their study pathway at one of Istituto Marangoni’s European schools in Milano, Firenze or Paris. On successful completion of that programme they will be awarded the 3-year Undergraduate Certificate from the chosen school.
