Fashion as an Industry

Fashion as an Industry 7,5 credits is a mandatory part of Master's Programme in Fashion Studies. Only students admitted to the programme can take this course and are registered by the Department.

The course treats the historical background, growth and transition of the global fashion industry over the last 200 years, focusing on the relationship between production, distribution and consumption of fashion and fashion goods. Three major developments are central to this process: the industrial revolution during the 18th and 19th centuries, the deregulation of national textile and garment industries in Western Europe during the 1970s, and the current deregulation of textile import quotas within the EU and USA.
