The industry - many opportunities for academics


The fashion and textile industry has undergone a major change in recent years. Due to the globalization many activities, for which no great know-how is important, have been relocated to countries such as China or Bangladesh. This led to an enormous drop in employment in Germany.

Nevertheless, the fashion industry is one of the most popular employers. And this is not unjustified: in order to further increase the turnover of around 10 billion euros per year, the industry is dependent on skilled trainees.

Creativity is the key


In contrast to the non-know-how jobs, especially in academia, there is a high demand for young, passionate employees. Creative Modedesigner are in demand.

But there is also a need for innovative clothing engineers who develop techniques to make a protective suit of the fire brigade even more insensitive to heat but also lighter. In short: in the fashion industry, there are a multitude of exciting fields of activity and jobs waiting for young graduates.

The focus is on the alignment!


If you are interested in getting started in the fashion industry, you have to decide between three possible fields of study: creative, technical or economical?

Each of these three directions has different focuses, different content and offers different career prospects.

Creative courses


This includes in particular the most well-known course of studies in the field of fashion, namely Modedesign. As a result, the influx is also the most important here: at the universities, art schools and Fachhochschulen, 10 applicants sometimes come to one of the very limited study places.

This high demand is certainly due to the fact that a Modedesign study and the associated hopes for a great career in the glamor world between catwalk, models and own modelabel exists in the minds of the study applicants as stereotype.

The study contents include:

  • Sketching techniques and model development
  • color theory
  • Design and Mod theory
  • Clothing design

Technical courses


These degree programs, such as textile technology or apparel technology, are usually geared towards the engineering sciences and end with the academic title "Bachelor of Engineering". The course contents therefore have a large technical share. Nevertheless, they are sometimes very differently structured.

Textile technology is concerned, for example, with the development and construction of machines and processes for the production and processing of fibers, yarns and textiles from synthetic and natural raw materials for clothing and technical applications.

The study contents include:

  • model development
  • Textile and clothing technology
  • Clothing machinery and manufacturing processes
  • manufacturing organization

(Business) Economic studies


The modem management and / or textile management courses provide knowledge on the intersection of moded design, textile technology and business management. This combination of business principles and text-specific or subject-specific content enables students or graduates to develop a wide range of activities, for example, as a product and collection manager of a fashion chain. Here they are responsible for the design, manufacture and smooth delivery of a product or collection. The degree is usually a "Bachelor of Arts".

  • The study contents include:
  • Quality-and Environmentmanagement
  • Product and merchandise
  • Fashion marketing
  • textile technology

Prospects after graduation


The employment fields after the completion of a Modestudium are versatile. First of all, it depends on which of the ways described above has been taken. Usually the graduates of the different fashion study courses meet again after the study in different roles and positions, for example at

  • Mod marks and chains
  • fashion designer
  • Special clothing manufacturer
  • supplier
  • Department store chains

Depending on how you set your personal focus on studying pages, and what practical experience you have gained through internships & co-operation, other career opportunities may also arise outside this overview.
