Project title: BA (Hons) Fashion Accessory & Textile Futures
Ravensbourne University is a digital media and design school in London, UK. The institute is showcasing its BA (Hons) Fashion Accessory & Textile Futures course during the VDF x Ventura Projects collaboration.
The programme invites students to "expand current perceptions" of fashion accessory and textile design through a mix of industry-led and practice-based projects. This year, its industry partners were Pentland and Material Drive.
Student designs, which range from eyewear to sneakers, are developed as either conceptual prototypes or commercial designs and reflect on sustainability and socio-political challenges.
