about the specialization

Teaching this specialization develops the individuality and artistic talent of students in the area of clothing design. The study is based on systematic reflection on the nature and evolution of fashion, on its relation to the evolution of lifestyles, world events and philosophical reflection on these processes. The students are treated individually and teaching is conducted to encourage the most inventive students to use free play and experimentation with materials and technologies. Students learn to work with fashion trends, find their own inspiration and thus develop their creative abilities. During their creative work, students are engaged in fashion drawing and modeling from auxiliary materials on a tailor′s dummy. Finally, they implement the model in a particular material. They document their work through fashion photography. An obvious part of the course  is team-working on the concept and execution of fashion shows, and participation in national and international competitions. In the framework of the semester studio course, students attend various specialized lectures.

Overall, the creative learning process, in conjunction with theoretical knowledge, is designed to be a comprehensive quality preparation for the professional career as a fashion designer, able to work independently through their own works of art, either one-of-a-kind works or mass products. The graduates will be ready to create a conceptually coherent fashion collection and product lines, and respond to the needs of industry or a particular client. Teaching includes social, sociological and marketing aspects.

Upon successful completion of the Bachelor's Degree Study Program, graduates are able to work independently as clothing designers in an artist workshop or in a small series production business. They are competent to work in a small designer clothing company, engaged in commission work, but also in a professional company manufacturing garments. They are capable of processing trends, formulating and building the philosophy of a particular brand and further develop its fashion collections. As professional designers, they find jobs in organizing fashion shows and various presentations. They can work as expert consultants for clothing, including fashion trends illustration through  fashion drawings. They are capable of independent work and teamwork.

The best semester works, semester projects and Bachelor’s theses can be regularly exhibited in two UWB galleries in Pilsen under the LSFDA management, and also in exhibition spaces outside the city of Pilsen. The students, with their best works, participate in design competitions in our country and abroad. Students may complete the study and internships abroad; an obvious part of the study is the involvement of students, under the expert guidance of teachers, in many art projects and art events; students can attend various workshops and plein air courses at the UWB training center at Nečtiny Castle or abroad.

Graduates can enter directly into practice as employees of an institution or as independent artists in their field. They can complete the Master's Degree Study Program with educational focus and then teach at schools of all grades and at extra-curricular facilities of various types. The most talented graduates can meet the conditions for admission and continue their studies in a FUD follow-up Master's Degree Study Program, at another UWB faculty, at another university in the Czech Republic or even abroad.
