Fashion industry is currently one of the main economic, social and cultural engines of our society thanks to the impact it generates in many areas, but also because it brings together many different industries such as textile, design, communication, distribution and even retail.
Fashion industry needs professionals who master their mechanisms and own languages, trends, artistic movements and new media in order to achieve business objectives through the creation of relevant dialogues between brands and consumers.
The mission of the Master in Fashion Creative Direction and Artistic Processes is to transfer the theoretical, methodological and practical knowledge specific to the profession. It develops students' analytical skills and offers the ideal tools and processes to develop their talent in each project, with the aim to train creative, effective, critical and competitive professionals.
Creative concepts that build the fashion discourse are created through ideas from culture, art and music, as well as from the icons from the history of fashion, personal experiences, personal references and intuition.
This master's degree enables us to acquire a strong sense of image that will help us create links between different sources of inspiration and that will lead us to the projection of fashion collections and of messages and concepts that are relevant to brands and the industry.
The course is addressed to fashion designers interested in assuming creative direction functions, to designers from different backgrounds and disciplines, with or without previous studies, with interest in the fashion universe. It is also addressed to professionals and/or entrepreneurs in the sector with the need to expand their knowledge and to professionals in the field of fashion communication, photography, styling and journalism who wish to master the creation and conceptualization of the fashion product, as well as its artistic and conceptual aspects.
