About this program

MA Innovative Fashion Production

The fashion industry is a fast-changing landscape that is dominated by the urgent need to reform production practices to be more agile, cleaner and smarter.

Within the next two decades there will be a revolution in how we make the fashion we recognise but as importantly, technology will lead us to create products in ways we as yet don’t fully visualise.

A systematic understanding of the importance of disruptive business models and emerging technologies in manufacturing is needed and the MA Innovative Fashion Production offers a real opportunity for graduates to play a key part in society's move to more sustainable practice, which involves more than material resources.

Collaboration is essential across all disciplines to ensure companies can manage the changes which are inevitable. Integral to the course is student collaboration and communication working to share knowledge whilst learning the impact of manufacturing upon the complete product lifecycle from concept to end of life.

This course embraces innovative ways of thinking about the entire product lifecycle and how fundamental production is to the positive innovation currently shaping the fashion industry of the future. The London College of Fashion, unlike many other fashion institutions has the facilities and academic research groups which can support a diverse range of interests.
