Digitalization of Fashion-Design Education

In this project RISE ICT/SICS and Stockholm University have worked in close collaboration between University of Borås - The Swedish School of Textiles, to develop new digital tools for e-learning and education in the fashion area as part of the Mobile-Life Fashion project. The goal is to give broad access to tools that can assist in fashion design – and at the same time give students a substantial fashion oriented vocabulary that enables students to properly communicate and articulate their design decisions. Our first tool is oriented around colour and colour theory where students get to explore classical “rules” and features in relation to their own designs, and get suggestions for how to explore entirely new fashion compositions by exploring these rules in a creative way. Moreover, students can also analyse their own designs to see how their “own” choices and rules relate to the classical ones.
