This programme covers the techniques, organisation and economics of the production process of fashion items, learning at how to manage technical problems, responding to technological changes and product innovation, as well as new influences in the industry such as sustainability and 3D printing. By studying the relationship between fashion and technology, innovative applications in production processes are discovered. Participants learn how to interpret style from the design concept and its development, through to the finished garment or product. Extensive knowledge of fabrics and materials, their properties and appropriate uses, combined with that of cut, construction and production time is covered. They understand how raw materials are transformed into the final product following pre-production processes – sampling and sourcing of raw materials etc. through to production including cutting and sewing, and finally onto post-production processes of folding and packing, quality control and shipment etc. By gaining an in-depth knowledge of these processes participants are able to make products that are both profitable and appropriate for the market. The supply chain, negotiation techniques with suppliers, quality control, definition of prices and delivery lead time are subject of discussion with professionals from leading companies in the fashion industry, with participants learning how to apply them to real-life projects. They select appropriate methods of company reporting in different negotiation phases of product development, correctly managing prototypes and communicating their findings. This course provides also a deep understanding of the social and environmental impact of fashion, with the aim of developing a critical and sustainable approach to the industry.
