Culture and research are the two distinctive features that contribute to a methodological approach to design. The history of fashion represents one of the pillars of knowledge for those wishing to operate in this sector. This course proposes an approach in which theory and practice, lectures and workshops alternate to build a course made of analysis and comprehension of the project.

The history of fashion therefore is not only explored as a cultural reference but also as a tool to understand and read the processes that have defined style and trends in the recent past.

Through an excursus and specific cases of the history of fashion in the 1900s and early 2000s, the course has a phenomenological approach that culminates in a small project analysis carried out during the course. The goal is to understand history as a conceptual tool, far from mere notionism, which interacts with the present in order to build the future.

The Course in Fashion History and Research Techniques is addressed to students and recent graduates, young designers who wish to deepen their methodological approach to project, those who desire to better understand the mechanisms and the interrelations between theory and practice with an insight on fashion history.
