Shanghai Textile University & Raffles Design Center
The best Chinese university for textile engineering studies and fashion marketing is the Dong Hua Da Xue, in Shanghai. On the campus you also have the Raffles Design Insitute, apparently a well-known Asian fashion design college that operates in collaboration with the Dong Hua University.
- If you log in into the website an operator will give you immediate assistance, but you will get answers to your questions only if you are interested in studying at the college. Enrollment fees: 230.000 RMB (26.000 Euro) which is pretty exclusive, not only in China…
The Raffles Design Institute is a nice modern building. I couldn’t take any picture there as since the time I put foot in the building I have been unofficially escorted and didn’t get a chance to speak with any student.
The staff teaching at the college is international. I was happy to see that even an Italian has found his path into the institute, which is surely a nice and creative place to work and study.
I would recommend a visit to the university and to the Raffles Design College to everybody who is interested in fashion design and fashion marketing. Also the adiacent textile museum is interesting as it explains the method of clothes production and has a good collection of Chinese clothes from the different dynasties (Shanghai Museum of Textile and Costume). Free admission.
