Ravensbourne University London has announced that it is to launch a new module entitled digital technology for fashion pathway on the BA (Hons) fashion course, commencing September 2021.
The course has been created to give students the digital skills to advance in the digital fashion industry. A practical approach will be taken during the course to utilise technologies such as CLO 3D, Marvellous Designer and Substance by Adobe.
Students will discover the following skills with the help of industry professionals: augmented reality, avatar modelling, character rigging, digital environments, digital garment design, virtual reality, world-building and 3D scanning.
During the course, students will have the opportunity to work to live industry briefs and they will engage in projects to create holograms, virtual garment fittings, virtual reality environments, sensory experiences and more.
Lee Lapthorne, the university’s programme director of fashion, said in a statement: “Our students take on a strong digital sensibility from the get-go at Ravensbourne and our tech team are forward-thinking, able to adapt and constantly come up with new innovative ways of working.
“Research suggests that both the luxury craft sector and digital fashion innovation will be the focus of the fashion industry and our students will graduate well equipped at the forefront."
Digital technology for fashion pathway is available to all Ravensbourne second-year BA fashion students and students currently studying year one at another university but wish to transfer in year two.
