Our staff are engaged as both practitioners and researchers, and are active as fashion and textile designers, curators, business innovators and leaders of industry.
Our expertise and professional engagement allows students to stay up to date with current industry needs throughout their studies, meaning that students graduate highly sought after by industry and can find positions in all areas of the global fashion and textiles supply chain. Our students make their mark through sustainable and independent design practices, and contribute to management and business operations through strategic fashion entrepreneurship.
Equipped to enter into the competitive fashion industry, our graduates can be found working for industry leaders including Dior, Alexander McQueen and Louis Vuitton, and shaping the local market at Country Road, Myer and Forever New.
RMIT is a global leader in fashion and textiles education. Our programs are internationally recognised, with graduates making an impact across the world.
We offer certificates, diplomas, associate and bachelor degrees, and postgraduate programs in state-of-the-art facilities at RMIT’s Melbourne campuses. Our students gain real-world experience working with global companies on projects that explore the connections between design, technology and business.
RMIT Fashion and Textiles continues to develop new environments for delivering programs. In 2014, RMIT invested more than AU$7 million in the Brunswick campus to create Melbourne’s state-of-the-art fashion hub.
The development contributes to establishing creative and exploratory learning environments that connect design and production, engaging learners with practice and advanced digital technologies, and stimulating new applications, methods and modes of thinking.
