This year, the school had 34 graduates across the Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in the fashion and textile field. For fashion, the students dig deep into the meaning behind the clothes and how they are made. What is the best way to drape? Do I need to use my knowledge over my intuition or are there even any rules at all? Marrying art and fashion, the collections strive for high-quality construction and a professional level of craftsmanship whilst exploring social issues on a deeper level.
Contrary to the bachelor’s degree, the master’s is more about innovation. How can textiles be more sustainable? How can we develop fabric to the next level? Graduates from the Swedish School of textiles have been researching these questions for several years now. Whilst there may not be a definite answer, there is definitely a way to heal ourselves from overconsumption and overproduction.
It is about the emotion, our relationship with clothing and what we feel when fabric touches our skin. The topics of this year’s class are deep, diving into spheres we didn’t even think of before. Creating far away from the pulse of the industry puts one at rest, at ease with the freedom to redefine what fashion means in our day and age.
Ready to bring their vision into the world, the 34 graduates of the Swedish School of Textiles are ready to disrupt and showcase what their DNA is made of. Whispering their secrets, their collections are ready to be discovered by the world.
