The creative exploration in fabrics requires a complex combination of knowledge and skills underpinned by a deep cultural background in the specific fields of fashion and the arts in general. The Master is mainly centered on innovation with a particular focus on Sustainability and Responsible Innovation.

The objectives are aimed at fostering research – thanks to a cultural and artistic preparation – and experimentation in the areas of weave, print design, manipulations, finishings of fabric design. All this in order to support the creative direction of fashion collections and facilitate the communication with the productive studios concerning the state of the art, the variety offered and the implementation of creative projects.
