Over a few decades, Textile and Fashion Design at the University of Ljubljana Department of Textiles, Graphic Arts and Design has become a modern, interesting and internationally comparable study. The new university programme, conceived according to the Bologna Declaration, is adapted to new challenges of design and the possibilities of today’s production of textiles and clothing. The joint study of Textile and Fashion Design develops analytical and conceptual thinking in support of project-oriented and team work methods directed at solving design issues of the broadest possible scope and at recognising rapid changes in the profession and in the culture in general. Designing innovative concepts is based on various methods of gathering information, observation, development and presentation. Through a balanced structure of courses, students develop independent design creativity and critical observation, while at the same time acquiring the necessary knowledge of textile technology, history of art, sociology, marketing, economics and the tools for virtual presentation of their ideas. They gain the capacity to plan, support and manage the realization of design projects that nowadays surpass the traditional orientation. The fields of study are all linked, supplemental and intertwined. In order to communicate with other players in the processes of development, production and marketing of textiles and clothing, young designers need the broadest possible knowledge directed at current needs, which this new programme undoubtedly provides in an improved and modernized form.

Although it has its origins in traditional handicraft skills, textile and fashion design is a branch that during the last century has developed into an independent and specific system of expression, interlinked with other artistic and designer practices and theories. The creative process of a textile designer generally starts with an idea, which needs to be first visualised through artistic means, while suitable technical processes are simultaneously considered and strategies developed. The process of conceptualising and materialising an idea requires broad understanding and experience of artistic disciplines and sociology and knowledge of production technologies.These basic directions include parallel studies of designing textiles and clothing, artistic expression, technology (which supports the realisation of designer ideas) and support studies (consisting of the necessary knowledge and skills of computer-assisted design, the history of textile and fashion design, marketing and management).
This idea is represented by a textile design pattern, comprised of enlarged human hands, playing...
