“Research plays a great role in creating a more sustainable fashion industry”
Malu Lücking has recently joined the Conscious Textile Group, the joint initiative of MOME Innovation Center and Nanushka.
After working as lead product designer at the next gen material company Saltyco in London, she will now work as a Research Fellow on the topic of Down to the fiber recycling, aiming to provide meaningful results for textile circularity. We had the chance to ask her about her new research and the arrival to Budapest.
How can graphic design illustrate tolerance? Born in Bosnia and currently living and working in New York, Mirko Ilić launched the Tolerance Poster Show six years ago, which is open to the public until April 2 in the MOME Ground.
What does it take for a young designer to be successful? Whether for running their own graphic design or animation studio, founding their own fashion label or working as an employee, future designers need market and entrepreneurial skills to succeed and realise their goals. For this purpose, MOME teachers have developed a course that is unique in the Central Eastern European region, providing students with a business approach specifically reflecting the needs of the creative industries. The Business to Design (B2D) educational programme was created with involvement of prominent professionals and entrepreneurs in the field, MOME alumni, as well as invited international speakers. Its originality lies in it forming part of the curriculum and being a mandatory subject for all BA students.
MOME has launched English language courses at different levels led by native teachers not just to improve the level of language skills in general but also to teach the vocabulary of the academic terminology, creative fields and the jobs trained at the university.
