The course (International Master Sustainability in Fashion) facilitates a successful entrance into design entrepreneurship and leadership positions within the international fashion industry.
Taking part in workshops, colloquiums and excursions as well as a practical exchange abroad will provide students with a deeper understanding of the industry.
The hands-on approach encourages students to explore the sustainable aspects of developing design strategies and methods for the future as well as providing access to innovative materials, technologies and production techniques. The creative development of the students is stimulated by the extensive yet specific approach to innovation. The Masters programme Sustainability in Fashion enables students to take existing restrictions as a chance to develop new, courageous and progressive fashion concepts.

Sustainability within the fashion industry is investigated throughout the course, in particular within the textile industry and product lifecycles. Pertinent issues are identified and explored, and solutions are found utilizing the concepts and skills studied throughout the year.
SUSTAINABLE DESIGN STRATEGIES
Designed to stimulate new ways of thinking, and the creation of innovative approaches and unique strategies, the course aims to catalyze the students' capacity for influencing more sustainability in the textile industry and product lifecycles. Exploring various forerunners in sustainable design, the course then pushes the students to turn obstructions and constraints into bold and progressive fashion concepts.
SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION AND TEXTILES
A wide range of textile materials and production procedures is covered, demonstrating the possibilities and limitations of ecological textile and apparel production. The course also explores toxicological aspects of fibre production, color, equipment and production.
Through the lens of sustainability, the international fashion market is analysed and traditional structures are questioned. Sustainable business models are becoming more and more important in the changing market structure, and the course focuses on supporting fashion's contribution to a better future for consumers, producers, and all involved in the process.
