Information to decide

Didactics is focused on a practical methodology of experimental projects and business simulations performed jointly with professionals in the sector.

It is divided in subject modules so students can develop one project after another, not many at the same time. A more effective proceeding that allows improvement in both development of concepts and production process of each project.

The first year of the course is focused on acquiring the main competences together with a strong culture and project methodology. The development of the personal style of each student starts being motivated and specific techniques of fashion are infused: pattern making, modelling, illustration, accessories, history, etc., essentials for anyone working on the field of fashion. Traditional and modern techniques are always combined during the lessons, to face the current industry in its full extent and encourage each student to discover techniques to further the development of the own creativity.

During the second year, students widen the knowledge acquired in previous semesters, they learn advanced techniques on modelling and pattern making, illustration, specific techniques such as knitting or accessories, and develop several collections (for man and woman). Various projects stand out because of their forward-thinking on techniques and tissues.

The third year emphasizes on the improvement of practical abilities in accordance with the exigencies of the professional world. A project on styling and sustainability will be developed, among others. During the last semester students will perform their degree final project, which is their official introduction to the professional world. The year culminates in the fashion show, where the creations conceived for their final project are shown.
