The Fashion Tech designer has a decisive role in Fashion and Lifestyle because he has the ability to unite worlds that have been far apart until now, such as ready-to-wear, sports and artificial intelligence.
To do this today, the Fashion Tech designer must be able to reflect on fashion design from the perspective of circular economy, in the sign of sustainability and traceability.
To go in this direction it is therefore necessary to think about the garment taking into account the origin and durability of materials so that they can be used as long as possible and then subjected to recycling. It is also essential to examine and apply the best way to construct the garment in order to facilitate the separation of materials and components.
In terms of ecological transition, the basis of Fashion Tech designers’ responsibility is the choice of “smart fabrics”, their origin and their production methods in order to create garments specifically designed to be reused and reinvented for a long time, giving a green turn to the entire fashion industry.
As the years go by, in fact, the relationship between fashion, sport and technology is getting closer and closer and fashion-tech is gaining more and more ground. If up to a decade ago it was still possible to imagine to keep the Fashion sector separate from the “Tech” one, today the commingling between these two worlds is getting stronger and stronger, so much to influence the development of the entire fashion industry.
Thanks to the Specializing Master, students have the opportunity to carry out internships in renowned companies in the fashion, sports and fabric sectors, some examples: in the fashion sector Loro Piana, Moncler, Missoni; in the sports sector Decathlon, Slam, Salewa, Champion, Colmar, Vibram, Santini, Alpina; in the fabric sector Radici Group, Taiana, Framis, Ripa. The direct and concrete experience in the companies allows the future designers in Fashion Tech to put into practice the knowledge acquired during the training course and to design innovative products, respecting the circular economy and product traceability, and able to respond to the new needs that the textile market requires.
