In the process of human civilization, dress culture has experienced thousands of years of development. From the early primitive society to the extension of the highly developed technology in the process of modernization, fashion culture accumulated human creative wisdom. It embodies the human society life custom, aesthetic interest, religious culture, science and technology.
In the process of development of the clothing culture, human beings have never stopped exploring innovation. Costume and culture, technology, design, business and service integration become the trend of development, has become an important force to promote the development of the apparel industry.
In the twenty-first Century, with the development of information technology and network economy, the apparel industry is facing unprecedented opportunities and challenges.
School of Fashion Accessory, Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology, set up a vision of building a distinctive and world-class fashion college. It is the only one of the focus of the design of the apparel industry development institute. In line with the idea of the construction of open innovation, design of a high starting point, high level, high integration, design discipline construction with the basic, comprehensive, interdisciplinary and international characteristics, emphasizing on the important role that multidisciplinary research, technology integration and innovation play in teaching and scientific research. Strive for the match for the direction of discipline and industry, reflecting the forefront, cutting-edge and cross characteristics.
The school is running mechanism and adhering to international standards, to internationalization, open education for the purpose of integrating the advantages of domestic and foreign education, industry leading design talent training for the social and industrial demand, and insight into the frontier science and technology and grasp the clothing design and engineering technology innovation and development, the ability to solve practical problems, high level and professional talents. Students are required to have an international vision and a sense of innovation, skillfully master the professional design skills, training open, innovative design thinking.
Teaching and research is using collaborative innovation matrix architecture, horizontal Jewelry Design Teaching Department, Shoes&Hats&Bags Design Teaching Department, Textile Design Teaching Department, Accessories Design Teaching Department and Department of industrial design. Focusing on professional teaching and research, it's divided into several distinctive professional orientations: jewelry design, bag design, footwear design, accessories and garments design, home design, home textiles design, wearable products design and intelligent products design. All for the national undergraduate and graduate students; vertical basic research platform, science research platform and resource integration platform. The basic research platform consists of creative thinking research center, color design research center, new materials design aesthetics and Culture Research Center, ergonomics research center and crafts innovation research center, teaching and research for common design techniques, in the field of fashion design, big data research and trend prediction of apparel product design the standard research and development and design and sociology, aesthetics, psychology, anthropology and other interdisciplinary contribution.
The mode of teaching and scientific research can help students master 3 kinds of abilities in learning:
Comprehensive knowledge ability: To cultivate students' knowledge of science, humanities, sociology, psychology, aesthetics and so on;
The insight of advanced technology: To master certain science and technology, such as engineering technology, information technology, textile technology, material technology and design technology itself;
Design thinking ability: To cultivate students' system design view.
Professor Jerome Vesna, who was president of MIT 26 years ago, said, "the most exciting part of science is the intersection." This is also the driving force of the innovation system of the art of dress and engineering, and we expect students to be able to let their dreams fly here!
