Research on fur garment design and industrial application of luxury goods
The research is about issues related to the development of fur fashion design and the luxury goods industry. It is a comprehensive research project in the fur industry and fashion industry, as well as a frontier research project in the international fashion field. The project includes research of creative industries, the fashion industry and the luxury goods industry, cutting-edge design of fur products, technology research and development and trend analysis and research.
Fur products were once a symbol of social status because of their luxurious appearance. Along with the development of modern society, advances in technology and renewal of design ideas, fur materials have been enriching and developing themselves in the process of continuous self-denial and fur products have been endowed with new meaning. The core of fashion design for fur products is to give play to the unique functions and expressive force of fur materials and this is the design concept of fur.
The research combines theory, practice and application and is of practical significance and research value for development of the fur industry and research in the fashion field. Meanwhile, it combines teaching and research and uses practical teaching to make teaching more targeted and practical.
