Textile Design

Today the textile market is characterized by a wealth and complexity of patterned fabric collections and color offerings. The course prepares students through various didactic steps to be autonomous in the creation of professional projects for printed fabrics and to develop creativity and design skills.

To design means to plan the operations to be carried out in order to realize the inventions.


Vittorio Fagone wrote: The merit of Renata Pompas is to have delineated a field of practical operativity and of productive reflection on Textile Design (…) leading them back to a unitary framework of project methodology, of extensions of Gestalt and of theories of visual perception, in addition to the sophisticated acquisitions of chromatological disciplines and information technology.
