De Montfort University‘s new Fashion and Textiles MA (Contour) ran for three semesters from September 2014 to September 2015 and gathered a mix of international and local professionals including three Contour BA graduates from DMU. The first class ran with a small group of students which meant each and every one could have full support from the contour crew and access to all technical expertise De Montfort has to offer.
The programme allowed students to explore and develop their techniques further resulting in a diverse array of projects. Some of the assignments saw students work on fabric innovation along with Stretchline, commercial partnerships with John Lewis, print development, Couture garments, the beginning of new brands and focus on sportswear.
