The aim of this minor is to familiarize students with the extensive possibilities of (pattern)technique in relation to the design of fabrics. Find freedom in the shape and detailing on the dummy and in paper, or combine the newest construction possibilities and materials into innovative products. You'll learn that pattern- and clothing technique can be liberating and that it can provide you with all the necessary tools to create state of the art designs. The assignment is sustainable driven and independent. You can work on unique fashion pieces or on more applied design. Technique will always be important. It is all about construction in relation to form, detailing and application. You can work both with pattern techniques on paper or digital patterns to create 3D virtual prototypes. The end product is a collection/ product that is both real and virtual.
Getting to know the possibilities of (pattern) technique, in relation to designs and fabrics.
For AMFI students: foundation year and 40 ECTS of the second year programme.
All students: Demonstrable knowledge of pattern drawing and design and textile background is essential.
