HSE Design Students Take Part in Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for the Second Time

Students from the HSE School of Design specializing in fashion presented their new collection H.A.R.D. 2.0 – a mix of works styled in a single concept. For a year HSE students have been experimenting with forms and techniques, deconstructing and creating new forms from old ones.

The fashion department at the HSE School of Design, which opened in 2014, uses teaching methods that are built on the principles of the world’s leading design schools. Through training based on specially developed original programmes, students learn to think creatively and conceptually, become immersed in a global context, and obtain a wide range of knowledge including everything from creating collections to retail, and from styling and fashion shots to marketing. In the new academic year, the School of Design will enrol students in both undergraduate and Master’s programmes in fashion.
