Interdisciplinary Curriculum for Fashion in the Digital Era
EDU4Fashion-Tech aims to to bridge the fashion field with that of innovative technologies by creating new training pathway to improve the level of key competencies and skills of students and trainers and to break down barriers between technologists and creative communities and build meaningful collaboration.
EDU4Fashion-Tech addresses the need for supporting innovation and creativity in fashion through partnership and inter- and trans-disciplinary approaches while enhancing the quality and relevance of students’ knowledge and skills within the fashion-tech sector and opening and innovating fashion design practices in a digital era.
This involves problem-based learning, development of knowledge and processes, product and service functionalities with a systemic and strategic approach. The project is led by University of Boras partnering with two other leading European HEIs pioneering fashion-tech approaches, in particular focusing on smart textiles, digital manufacturing and wearables: Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI) – Design Department – Fashion in Process Research Collective and University of the Arts London (UAL) - London College of Fashion.
