HYBRID Textiles Progamme description

The course launched in Autumn 2017. Initiated by MFA Textiles founder Lidewij Edelkoort, who is also dean of Hybrid Design Studies at Parsons. It  offers a curriculum that engages students passion and the university’s extensive resources, preparing for the growing array of opportunities related to textiles in fashion, product, interior, and scenic design; research; fine arts; architecture; and hybrid fields.


This program is part of both the School of Fashion (SOF) and the School of Constructed Environments (SCE) at Parsons. The resulting interdisciplinary approaches connect a spectrum of design disciplines and concerns ranging from human factors to environmental sustainability to social justice. Accordingly, the program welcomes applicants from a variety of fields, including textile research, studio design, and liberal arts. The MFA Textiles community is diverse and committed to expanding the field’s boundaries and creating hybrid practices that integrate Silicon Valley’s high-tech innovations with the Hudson Valley’s craft techniques.
