Fashion Design & Activewear
The Fashion Design & Activewear Master equip participants to meet the demands of a luxury market that is becoming increasingly attentive to the well-being and health of both the human body and our planet. In recent years, the most relevant fashion brands have renewed their collections with clear references to the world of well-being, while at the same time moving towards an eco-conscious production.
This course aims to bring together two worlds that seemed so distant until a few years ago, while keeping in the foreground the Italian-ness as well as the most up-to-date professional skills that distinguish the creative approach of Istituto Marangoni. With a well-balanced mix of cutting-edge subjects, methodologies and innovative technologies, students fully immerse in the design process for sportswear collections - 3D Pattern cutting and production planning. Furthermore, they are introduced to the future of fashion through the experience of Virtual Catwalks, while keeping sustainability at the outmost level of attention. In addition, participants acquire the skills needed to design comfort-wear as well as garments with stretch and elasticated materials, and get familiar with new interpretations and fabric manipulation techniques.
Participants have the chance to research and investigate new messages of body positivity, individuality, genderless or unisex sizing, with the aim of providing future designers with a complete framework of activewear design for fashion. The strong design and practical elements of the course run alongside contextual, theoretical, conceptual and forward-looking perspectives, leading to a dissertation accompanied by an individually inspired capsule collection, that responds to the realities and the new opportunities of fashionable activewear apparel.
