Textiles & Fashion

The Textiles program introduces students to the diverse field of textiles, which encompasses art, science and technology.

Students master the basic techniques and design skills involved in the textile traditions of weaving, dyeing, and printing. Students will examine the relationship between materials, processes, and the maker, as well as the critical role that textiles have played in world cultures.


Fashion courses at NSCAD offer students a balanced curriculum through which to develop skills and knowledge related to imaginative design and technical proficiency.

The fashion curriculum explores issues and meaning of fashion and body covering within the intensive study of the conceptualization, production and embellishment of cloth and other materials. The resulting product will have application to the development of individual garments, costuming for film, theater and dance, wearable art and haute couture.

Fashion is offered as a minor.
