Primark Collaboration with MassArt, Fall 2015
Fashion Design explores the relationship between classic principles and bold innovation -‐ and how each one can drive the process of creation. MassArt Fashion Design was established in 1907, and is one of the oldest fashion programs in the United States.
Fashion Design students learn the processes, techniques, and tools needed to develop design concepts across formats - 2D and 3D designs, digital and hand drawings, flat patterns, and fully constructed garments - while developing the critical skills they need to evolve into a versatile design professional. Beyond the basics of fashion design, students learn the business fundamentals of apparel marketing, manufacturing, and production procedures.
Our faculty offer invaluable instruction in key tenets of design, as well as a broader perspective on the history of fashion, and how cultural and aesthetic trends emerge and adapt. Our classrooms and studios are geared toward collaboration and thoughtful critique - each of which will be expected of students during their time in the program.
In addition to studio and classroom experience, students are presented opportunities for internships, international travel and industry collaborations.
Through their learning experiences, students develop the skills and training needed to convey their individual design viewpoint, and to craft a portfolio of work that embodies that vision.
