At postgraduate level participants will already have prior undergraduate level study with portfolio creation, or relevant industry experience in order to successfully follow the course components in creative research, design, professional project development, and business preparation. With a focus on the excellence of Italian style, the course also investigates the impact of ‘Italianness’ on the international menswear industry and key fashion calendars. Combining technical expertise in advanced menswear tailoring with creative research into contemporary influences and challenges, participants deepen their understanding to produce innovative ideas and inspiration for new trends. They are encouraged to experiment with new approaches in the industry that are evolving today, including renewable and sustainable resources, innovative materials and new technologies, increasing confidence in their own original and individual style, and creative and professional abilities. They investigate influences in art, culture, music, and design, while also respecting brand identity or requests from a client brief in order to meet the challenges of the market. Through subsequent in-depth semantic and sociological analysis participants learn how to interpret proposals specifically for the menswear market. Central to the master’s course is the development of industry products, collaborating with companies looking for original and innovative contributions. Participants experience ‘real world’ project development in a professional setting receiving feedback and guidance from the company. The fashion course provides a successful balance between advanced design techniques, the finished product, market innovation and marketing, while concentrating on key issues in time management and budgets and their influence on production. The history of design provides the necessary skills to make a critical assessment of a brand’s or client’s lifestyle and legacy, completing the course with a highly specialised profile in menswear design.
