Master Courses - Barcelona

Download the brochure

The Master in Men’s Fashion Design specializes in designing and producing a private menswear collection, which starts with a concept and follows through to the finished item, including fittings, photo shoots and a portfolio. In the complex and changing world of fashion, one of the major transformations in consumer habits is the recent rise in male customers. Fast fashion is in, but we are seeing a new wave of consumers who appreciate quality, customization and exclusivity in the clothes they wear.

Focussing on this niche, the Masters seeks to redefine the concept of menswear and introduce tailoring techniques to the present context. The course does not intend to be a specialization in classic tailoring, but it encourages each student to develop their personal expression and sensitivity while exploring traditional and innovative menswear codes.

This involves implementing some of the key techniques and tools used in design, concept research, textile handling, digital printing, pattern transformation and volumes, as well as cutting and confectioning items for the final collection.

LLAMAZARES Y DE DELGADO

LLAMAZARES Y DE DELGADO
LLAMAZARES Y DE DELGADO based in Barcelona, design using an original idea as a starting point, which they transform, develop and dilute until they obtain the essence of the inspiration, to adapt it to the reality of the current moment. Since 1997, they have presented pret-couture collections for men and women, which are complemented with knitwear and accessory lines, thus creating their universe. With a leitmotiv of the versatility of the pieces, the quality of the finishes, a subtle retro touch, and a mixture of genders and colours, and inspired by themes related to cinema, music, old family photos, architecture, travels and memories… they design varied and bold timeless combinations.
