The ART-CHERIE 7-unit course structure designed by University of the Arts London – London College of Fashion includes a combination of taught material and self-learning activities exploring womenswear, colour, pattern, menswear, embroidery, knit and the consolidation into a designer portfolio.
In 2018 the project launched two pilot units: Womenswear and Embroidery. This online course uses and valorises the collection from the Textile Museum in Prato by including their newly digitalised garments and fashion plates used within the pilot units. The museum has digitised around 60 garments, as well as other artefacts such as painting, photography and fashion magazines which have been contextualised within their historical period.
The ART-CHERIE educational platform is now accessible online by clicking here.
This platform is a Moodle based Learning ICT tool, which contains innovative teaching material for EU designers and students in fashion schools in the specific subjects of garment design and embroidery.
