The Master in Fashion, Art and Textile Innovation is conceived for highly creative professionals operating in the field of fashion and art. This exciting programme supports the development of creative practice through a project proposal and ongoing evaluation. The course is aimed at continuously exploring key ideas and critical issues by involving a wide range of specialists in the field, interdisciplinary practice, institutional networks, dynamic teaching and exhibition opportunities.


This forward-thinking course is also taught with the support and collaboration of two key industry partners to gain real hands-on industry experience covering the fashion, materials and artistic network: Etro, a world-renowned leader in Luxury Italian Fashion and Manteco, a leader in textiles, sustainability and high-quality fabrics since 1943. 

This programme is created around interdisciplinary experimental projects and an innovative approach in the textiles and materials areas. This training equips participants with highly sought-after analytical skills, as well as practical transferrable problem-solving abilities, perfect for career progression in areas such as research, design, development and planning. Emphasis is placed on exploratory and versatile attitudes through theory and practical work. Students build their knowledge by being encouraged to unlock their potential, in order to innovate and develop, incorporating new technologies and sustainable approaches.
