Our aim is to prepare future industry professionals who will bring the Turkish fashion, textile and ready-to-wear industry to the top of the global market.
The concern of our program is for students to understand the process of creating and marketing global brands related to Textile and Fashion Design and the Fashion Business.
The teaching structure has been formed to respond to the necessities of the business world. Many of the teaching staff have been chosen from the industry and are also currently active with prominent companies in Aegean region.
Through the path of building an international vision; consultancy given by the professional staff of Istituto Europeo di Design in Italy, Western Michigan University in U.S.A and Middlesex University in United Kingdom is supporting the main staff. This vision is empowered by English as the core language of instruction in addition to courses in second foreign language.
Textile and Fashion Design Department structures its scientific content thru a balance between cultural, technical and design areas. Within this structure, it has been aimed not only being the leader as a school, but also a center of attraction for both professionals and amateurs of the fashion world. Faculty and industry professionals are also involved with the organization of a fashion council and a trend forecasting project.
The students study common core courses in the first year of the education. During the second year, they will specialize in one of the following options: Fashion Design or Fashion Business.
Fashion Design Specialization Area
The aim of the Fashion Design Option is to prepare the students to be professionals in the ready-to-wear industry, to carry out research in that field and to manage projects in collaboration with the industry.
The method of instruction is structured upon the idea of developing international brand images by original and market oriented designs. This is accomplished through the practical collection courses and stages in the companies. By utilizing this approach, cultural knowledge is gained through the history of art and fashion, sociology, aesthetics, semiology and marketing courses. Technical knowledge is gained through material technology, pattern and dress making techniques, color and presentation techniques, computer applications and laboratory courses. This technical knowledge is then reflected by the students thru design pojects related to various sectors such as womens’ wear, mens’ wear, childrens’ wear, sportswear, knitwear, leather garments and accessories.
Fashion Business Specialization Area
The goal of the Fashion Business Option is to prepare students for professional careers in the Fashion Industry, both in Turkey and abroad. Technological advances in the Business of Fashion just in the past few years include Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Body Scanning, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), Electronic Inventory Systems, Just In Time manufacturing capability, Quick Response, Mass Customization and countless advances in the production of fibers and garment manufacturing. The marketing and advertising of fashion products has developed into an industry of its own. All of the corporations, from the smallest button manufacturer in India to the largest design and production firms in New York City are in need of educated and well-informed individuals. Our goal is to respond to the demands of the Industry for skilled, informed, and highly motivated individuals. The environment of the Fashion Industry is one of constant innovation. Our students will be equipped to meet, and exceed, these challenges in an organized and professional manner. The ability to solve problems and adapt quickly to new situations in the business environment is one of the most important lessons the students will become competent at. The Fashion Business curriculum is continuously accentuated by lectures and seminars by Industry leaders and visits to Fashion related facilities. Students are given unique access to the professionals who are currently leading the Fashion and Textile Industry in Turkey and abroad. These are opportunities for the students to see and hear exactly what challenges they will be faced with in their careers and important contacts for them as they start to look for employment after graduation. The Business of Fashion Option will emphasize the international importance of the Fashion and Textile Industries, especially to Turkey. Our intention is to prepare students to be the future leaders of this vital sector of Turkeys economy. As graduates of the Izmir University of Economics they will be ready to establish the next generation of global Turkish brands.
