In the Degree Programme in Clothing Design you have the chance to grow into a fashion expert. The programme focuses on the well-being that clothes bring to people in terms of fashion, sports and activity.
We carry out clothing design projects for our partner organisations. The diversity of nature and variations between seasons provide our students with the chance to gain first-hand knowledge of the requirements for clothing in different conditions and activities by testing them in practice.
For our exchange students we have put together an English-taught study module in Clothing Design. Check the Admissions pages for further information.
Arctic Fashion Show 2016
Would you like a ticket to the show or rather design a collection yourself? Together with businesses and local experts, we organise the Arctic Fashion Show, which displays our clothing designers’ work at indoor facilities or in environments made of snow.
In our studies we focus on developing clothes to serve their purpose. We also look at how clothes serve different consumer groups.
Collection design allows you to draw upon both your skills and knowledge and engage in women's, men's and children's clothing.
The various habitus of consumers and new genres offer you the chance to explore a range of different dressing styles as a designer.
We utilise the Sinco environment to illustrate the world of children's clothing.
Shape and 3D modelling
Design studies involve the use of 3D modelling to explore shapes of clothes.
Clothing for cold climates
The significance of clothing in the Arctic climate is highlighted when developing clothes to meet the requirements for outdoors clothing.
Functional clothing design
In functional clothing design you can choose your own hobby or explore a whole new area of sports for which to design clothes.
In the advanced studies students are required to produce a career plan and carry out a final project that adheres to the plan, demonstrates their skills and facilitates their transition to work. Students can apply their designer expertise in a range of careers within businesses, organisations and in the culture sector as a fashion designer for performance art, or in research and development tasks in the industry.
