This course aims at providing students with the skills necessary to write articulate and aware fashion texts. Through insight into the fashion world and media, students will learn to grasp the different styles of fashion writing and they will have ample opportunity to practice writing and critical thinking. Using trend reports, reviews of collections and media analyses, students will learn how to approach fashion texts from different angles.

Examination Modalities

Active student participation during the course is absolutely essential for this course. It is your responsibility to sign in every class, as attendance will be taken at the beginning of each meeting. Signing in for a previous day is not possible so be sure to sign in each day. Signing for another student is a form of academic dishonesty and will not be tolerated.

To receive full attendance credit you are expected to:

  • Attend every meeting and to attend the entire session
  • You are allowed to miss 1 lecture but must excuse your absence in advance via e-mail
  • Participate in group discussions and class assignments
  • Hand in a text (garment or collection description) at the end of the term (submission date: TBA)


The course will be held online and blend asynchronous learning with synchronous learning (bi-weekly discussion sessions on zoom). Details will be announced at the beginning of October.
