Fashion designers, as creative experts in the textile and clothing sector, are responsible for materially and formally designing products in keeping with market needs and new trends, in solutions that take into account attractiveness, graphic and ideographic aptness and technical, production, economic, environmental and sociocultural viability.

In addition to having in-depth knowledge of industrial aspects and the textile and clothing-related trades, they must also be capable of carrying out interdisciplinary work, collecting information and communicating ideas.

By the same token, they must be capable of generating and communicating proposals that enrich the sociocultural milieu and are in tune with the sensibility of the target group.

The academic qualification obtained upon successfully completing this program of study is equivalent, to all effects, to a 3-year university degree or diplomatura.
