BA Textile & Fashion (Design)

University of Arts, The Hague

Bachelor Undergraduate Den Haag

Course description

Qualification Bachelor of Arts
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary Textile and Fashion at KABK focuses on innovation, experimentation, improvisation, analysis, reflection and insight underpinned by a profound knowledge of history and folklore.
Course description The Textile and Fashion department at KABK trains you to become a fashion designer or textile designer. Both professions require an innate curiosity and interest in the unknown, as well as the drive for innovation. Just like a visual artist, you have an antenna for receiving and predicting the character of an era – what will it look like, and what will the fashion industry need accordingly? You feel socially engaged, you are flexible and tolerant, you think beyond the boundaries of disciplines, you know the rules of the field and you want to communicate a relevant and alternative message. With your professional attitude, skills and expertise you will be able to grow your own design practice and create a niche and identity for yourself as a designer.
Study subjects Courses in art philosophy, history of costume & textile, and visual development. (Fashion) drawing, sketching, making collages and other graphic work will help hone your artistic talents. You’ll learn the sophisticated implementation of your design through pattern making, shaping, experimental form study and tailoring. Step by step, you’ll develop a personal vision based on content and message.
Course objectives The goal is to train students to become independent designers. Students are encouraged to develop their own personal view and signature. They have to create a relevant balance between the fashion and the textiles aspects of their work and to have them both influence their work. Central to the programme is designing a collection.
