The aim of the ART-CHERIE (Achieving and Retrieving Creativity through European Fashion Cultural Heritage Inspiration) project is to exploit the Cultural Heritage in fashion through a vocational training course, for the improvement of EU fashion designers.

Principal Investigator: Professor Jose Teunissen
College:London College of Fashion

UAL has embarked on a mission to develop an online design tool for EU fashion designers through ERASMUS+ KA2 ART-CHERIE, a research project led by Professor José Teunissen. The university is one of five partners behind the project, which aims to promote and explore the use of digital  fashion archives and heritage by shaping vocational training and developing e-curricula to train EU fashion designers to work with online archives to improve their designs. The project coordinated by EURATEX was launched in December. The ART-CHERIE project will bridge the gap between the fashion industry and lack of specific expertise in SME’s designers by achieving a common VET – ICT tool for the fashion sector.

The project partners include:

EURATEX (European Apparel and Textile Confederation) (Belgium)

Fondazione Museo del Tessuto di Prato (Italy)

The Hellenic Clothing Industry Association (Greece)

Gnosi Anaptixiaki NGO (Greece)

Key Staff: Darren Gray, Suzanne Baldwin and Polly Kenny.
