During this program you will develop a project that is purposeful and driven by a future vision on fashion. It gives insight in how you can produce more economically (f.e. less physical samples) stimulates collaboration and dares you how to be a revolutionary. It opens possibilities to work on your own individual development and expression in relation to digital innovation.
The aim of this minor is to introduce you to the unlimited possibilities offered by today's software programs to challenge virtual design in the fashion industry. You will explore freedom in design by using the digital world as a playground. Working digitally is an eye-opener in making a contribution to a more sustainable and purposeful work field.
You will dive into the creation of virtual, true-to-life garment visualisation and learn that pattern and clothing construction techniques offer a wide range of possibilities. You will learn how to digitise materials and create personalised avatars.
The course assignment can be industry-oriented and independent, as long as it’s about developing design models for a better planet.
1.Framing & Strategizing
1.1 The student formulates a relevant topic/project in the field of Fashion & technology
1.2 The student makes use of relevant and various sources to underpin and explore the topic/project.
2. Concepting & Ideation
2.1 The student shows evidence of a clear vision on Fashion & technology & creates an innovative
design-led, technical process/product.
2.2 Develops a project/ product in an inspiring manner and attunes the presentation to a relevant target group.
3. Creating & Crafting
3.1 The student develops a justified concept and product using construction, pattern, and visualization techniques within the digital design process and shows evidence of experiments with different 3D technologies that apply to the project.
4. Reflection & Awareness
4.1 The student can justify and defend the design choices regarding silhouette, form & function and
evaluates the social and/or environmental impact of the project.
4.2 The student reflects on the process, and forms areas for improvement
All students: Basic knowledge of CLO3D and/or Browzwear (or similar 3D design applications) and/or an interest in exploring digital design possibilities in relation with fashion.
The teaching and examination regulations of your own Bachelor programme apply.
You will need a powerful laptop. In case your laptop is not strong enough to run the 3D programs we require, please inform the coordinator to see if there are laptops available to borrow.

The program is full-time, this means we count on an availability of 40 hours per week including contact hours on-line or live and self-study in the AMFI. Around 15 contact hours a week of classes and workshops at AMFI.
80% attendance is required to complete the course.
Concept Check – 0 credits
Product Check – 0 credits
Final Assessment – 22 credits
Research Report – 8 credits
Assessments will take place by submission and presentation of the deliverables required.
During the program the student will work on a personal digital project. The outcome will be a physical and/or digital product and a research report.
If a student fails to successfully complete the minor in the period in which she took the minor it is possible to finalize the minor in a following period in which the minor is given.
If a minor is no longer offered or in case the minor is rewritten, the degree programme will offer students a further two opportunities to finalize this minor in the following year.
