Digitalization is revolutionizing the textile industry. At the same time, we can’t look away when it comes to sustainability. The STF is contributing – with individual curricula and the right offers, for students in full-time, workers, and creatives.
How can you develop clothes on a virtual 3D – Avatar? How are Fashion-Designers able to use Social Media right? And how do you plan a strategy on sustainability and resourcefulness?
The answers to all these and many other questions are taught in the STF Swiss Textileschool in their curricula and studies. With that, the renowned private school is focusing on the changes in the textile industry due to digitalization.
Because the future of creating textiles is the connection of various possibilities with digital technology, in acting in niche areas, and the sustainable usage of resources.
