The Textile Design Programme at IVS provides students with a broad orientation to program specialization, development of skills and a comprehensive understanding of materials and processes keeping in mind the socio-cultural and historical context of textile; in relation to craft, trends, consumers and market.
The program aims to nurture creative thinkers, motivate innovation and foster an inspiring, student-centred learning and research environment.
It is with great pride and pleasure that I invite you to take a look at the final thesis projects of our graduating students.
The Degree Show website was launched initially in 2020. For the first time in the history of IVS, the thesis display could not take place in the usual physical setting. 2020 was an unusual year in so many ways and our students as well as faculty had to adapt to new modes of learning, creating and presenting their work. The challenges of the global pandemic forced us all to engage differently with our social world and our creative practices. Yet the results of this tumultuous, experimental period were impressive in their range and focus, and gave birth to the first-ever IVS online degree show. The website allowed viewers to engage with the works up close and in their own time. Therefore, we have decided to make it a permanent annual feature that will accompany and complement the in-person shows.
I hope you will take your time exploring all these wonderful works of art, design and architecture, and will come back to enjoy your favorites again and again.
