Course Introduction

MA Fashion Futures students are encouraged to explore and develop speculative fashion practice and theoretical perspectives in parallel. They will identify new territories for fashion and work in new spaces to communicate ideas in relation to design for sustainability. The course considers digital design applications, the interplay of hard and soft sciences, design futuring, fashion design theory, fashion thinking, meta design, ethics, politics, psychology and anthropology.

**What can you expect?**

Students will examine a diverse range of methodologies and technologies, including film, audio, digital and online platforms, garment prototyping, publishing, events and performance. Students will learn critical fashion practice to test, reframe and make responses to existing paradigms. This will enable students to develop a very personal response to the role and activities of fashion. This course is aligned to and supported by the Centre for Sustainable Fashion and the Fashion Digital Studio.
