Students learn to combine design, commerce, industry and research based approaches. Artistic and creative problem-solving strategies and techniques in mastering silhouettes, structures, materials and colours are a part of the studies. Students learn an experimental and conceptual approach to creating fashion, clothing, textile, surface and colour concepts and collections of a high international standard.
The Fashion, Clothing and Textile Design programme from Aalto University emphasises the understanding of different cultures and encourages students to innovate and re-think current practices in fashion as well as design business and industry. Entrepreneurial and sustainable thinking as well as multidisciplinary co-operation and communication in product development are essential skills.
The graduates have the skills and knowledge needed to sustain a professional career in fashion, clothing, textile, and design business and industry, media and education. The master studies prepare the students for a career in academic and corporate research.
