Design and and produce a 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 Master in Men’s Fashion Design 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.
The Master teaches a combination of specific theoretical know- how and essential hands-on experience. The learning process includes a practical stage involving workshops, visits to businesses in the sector, work groups and masterclasses delivered by professionals, along with projects and assessments.
In the workshop, students get to gain first-hand experience in applying the different techniques and stages. Based on the feedback they are given, students will create items that reflect how important it is to understand the user’s needs, the technical requirements that those needs entail, the creative design process, the play of volumes and silhouettes, the choice of materials and the sector’s specific confection techniques.
The designer’s ability to express their individuality and sensitivity is also a key factor in the course methodology.
The course targets:
To sign up, candidates must present their CV and an academic and/or professional portfolio.
Career options will depend on the qualifications and experience that each student has at the start, which is the basis that this masters course will build on to enhance their knowledge and broaden their options within the fashion sphere.
Upon completion, they will be qualified to bring added value to various fields in the textile sector, especially menswear design. They will be ready to work as specialized designers either for a fashion label’s creative department or for a textile production company, or alternatively as freelance designers undertaking their own projects.
