The Digital Fashion Innovation course encourages and supports designers to explore and work with advanced digital technologies, interrogate and question current fashion practice and challenge the ideals around how a product is realised. Fashion is currently recognised as one of the most damaging industries on the planet, abusing natural resources, dumping tonnes of redundant waste and product into land fill and flushing tonnes of chemicals into the oceans on a daily basis. It is therefore critical the practice of a designer acknowledges and attempts to address and integrate a conscious and considered approach to both the design and realisation of a fashion product.
These design problems will be addressed through applying a process of systematically questioning existing ideals and use innovative design methods to analyse and comprehend problems and behaviours to generate alternative, creative and experimental design solutions.
The MA in Digital Fashion innovation recognises individuals and their aspirations, and celebrates ideas, making, and creative risk-taking. Our guiding principle is to offer distinctive, exciting and challenging opportunities for you to engage in your respective subject disciplines in order to critically engage with, and redefine, your particular approaches to your practices and position them within your chosen external, creative, economic, and cultural environment.
