Who should take this course
In MA Fashion Futures, a groundbreaking course, you are encouraged to explore and develop speculative fashion practice and theoretical perspectives in parallel.
You will identify new territories for fashion and work in new spaces to communicate ideas in relation to design for sustainability where digital design applications, the interplay of hard and soft sciences, design futuring, fashion design theory, fashion thinking, meta design, ethics, politics, psychology and anthropology are considered.
You will examine a diverse range of methodologies and technologies, including film, audio, digital and online platforms, garment prototyping, publishing, events and performance. Critical fashion practice and reflexive thinking to test, reframe and make responses to existing paradigms, is key to MA Fashion Futures. This will enable you to develop a very personal response to, and a critique of, the current paradigm and the role and activities of fashion.
This course is aligned to and supported by the Centre for Sustainable Fashion and the Digital Anthropology Lab.
