Overview

The Department of Fashion Design provides instruction in clothes design and associated fields. Historical fashion design and its interpretations in time, innovation and new technologies, mapping the needs of target groups, creating brands, and environmentally aware thinking are only some of the diverse subject that are covered.

The department promotes creative and research work, organises exhibitions, encourages participation in exhibitions and fashion competitions, and cooperates with the fashion industry.

Graduates with BAs in fashion design are qualified as assistants to fashion designers, and graduates with MAs acquire the profession of fashion artist-designer.

  • Fashion artists and designers have been educated in Estonia for more than 70 years, the main strength of the department can be considered to be the continuity of the specialised education.
  • The assignment of the Department of Fashion Design is to provide BA and MA instruction that is internationally recognised, appropriately contemporary, yet directed toward the future. And to provide opportunities for increasing and ensuring the competitiveness of young fashion designers.
  • The continued interest in fashion design is proven by the large number of applicants who annually apply, and also by the constant demand of the fashion industry for new specialised and qualified talent. We all need fashionable new garments.
