Cracow School of Art and Fashion Design (SAPU) offers a two-and-half-year full time program. Our staff, all specialists within different areas of art and design, provide a program of study that enables a student release his full potential. After 20 years of experience the school has achieved a high standard and an exellent reputation. We have been able to place many students in Polish fashion companies, ranging from cutting-edge boutiques to the largest industry enterprises listed on the Polish Stock Exchange. Some students have also found employment with international companies operating in a diverse range of countries. The school is approved by the Polish Ministry of Culture, and is listed in the Ministry’s Art School Directory. The school is opened for international students and tuition is held in English. Our intensive and comprehensive academic tuition in fashion allows students to prepare an excellent portfolio.
Since many years the School’s graduates have been taking part in Polish and international contests for fashion designers and they have won numerous prizes of high importance for their carriers:
The 2.5 year full-time program introduces students to the essential skills of fashion and textile design from sketch pad to catwalk. It includes design, textiles, fashion illustration, garment construction and garment styling. English and Polish classes are held for two years. The graduates receive diploma – Fashion Designer.
Throughout the first semester students are introduced to the basic skills necessary to develop their creativity. There are separate workshops for life drawing, colour study, composition, painting, fashion drawing, shoe design, jewellery design and apparel design. The second semester provides students with the opportunity for further development of their skills in fashion design. New workshops are introduced, i.e. patternmaking, shoe design and textile design. Different colour techniques, modes of expression and numerous presentation methods are offered to the students. At the end of each semester students present their work at a scheduled fashion show.
The second year employs the basic skills already learned to develop a personal style through design research and to study many different fashion products. Students practise sketching men, women and children, and they research fashion trends, fabric choices, colour cards, and current season’s publicity material. In this year we emphasize definition, development and creation of collections. New workshops are introduced, i.e.: accessories including millinery, textile technology, fashion photography and the history of fashion. Again, at the end of each semester, students’ works are presented at fashion shows. The fifth and final semester concludes with an opportunity to design and manufacture a diploma collection. The best collections are presented at fashion show (Cracow Fashion Awards) in late March, which is the highlight of the school’s academic year.
