Study profile Textile & Fashion

The Textile & Fashion department of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (KABK) has a very distinctive profile. The combination of two disciplines within one department is unique in the Netherlands and inspires the curriculum of the programme.

Within four years you will be trained to recognise and develop your own authentic talent as well as your personal vision on textile, fashion and the spirit of the times. These skills are acquired by conducting in-depth research into the role and relevance of fashion and textile in society of the past, present and future.

Eventually, you graduate with a collection that reflects your critical and personal point of view with which you can position yourself in the professional field in a distinctive and meaningful way.

Professional Perspective

The objective of the Bachelor Textile & Fashion is to train students to become independent and professional designers. We guide their individual development process in a semi-professional context.

The focus of Fashion Design is on the necessary and specific skills of the craft, with an emphasis on artistic authenticity. Textile Design offers a very broad spectrum of professional opportunities, including autonomous designers, interior designers, industry or product development designers, or designers for fashion collections.
