The study programs of the Department have been changed and adapted to the changes of the world fashion production and students' needs during its long existence. In 2005 as a consequence of the Bologna declaration a five-year study was introduced with possibility of interrupting the study after 3 years as a baccaleraus.
Due to the study interdisciplinarity of textile and fashion design as well as industrial design and due to the need of an integral education of students, the Department combined different design, artistic, technological and scientific fields in order to realize the study, from courses in textile and garment design, fashion design of textiles and garments, garment design, drawing and painting, history of clothing and fashion, history of art and fashion illustration over theory courses such as courses in theories of visual communication, aesthetics, fashion sociology, economics and marketing to courses in textile and clothing technology. This kind of study organization adds and brings technological, artistic, social and humanistic programs into balance with fundamental design education. For the needs of specialization different branches of study were introduced in which students can realize their special capabilities, orientations and interests.

Thanks to this organization of the program and curriculum with contemporary instruction contents being constantly supplemented and harmonized with world trends, the study makes it possible to express individual creativity that is necessary for this kind of education, maintains a high level of artistic, professional and scientific work and keeps the study contents on top of world trends. In the study of industrial textile and clothing design the basic engineering knowledge of textile and clothing technologies is combined with artistic education and the student becomes able to include creative design component into the textile and garment manufacturing process. The homogeneity of the program with the European and world study level as well as the connection and collaboration with European universities and studies of textile and fashion design enable student exchange, taking some exams abroad and the continuation of the study outside Croatia.

Upon completion of the 5-year study masters in textile and fashion design can continue postgraduate specialist and doctoral study at the Faculty.

The inclusion of the technology courses into the textile and fashion design does not only connect the design teachers and students with the other Departments in doing diploma theses, fashion collections, work presentations, one-man shows and realizing scientific projects, but also it realizes a necessary connection between fashion and industrial textile design and clothing with technologies and science.

One of the unavoidable methods of expressing acquired knowledge and capabilities in this study are final works that can be presented by students in cooperation with teachers so that they participate in internal and public fashion shows and other forms of manifestations related to fashion and art. Upon completion of the study fashion designers are able to work abroad, besides the inclusion into the fashion production of Croatia. Many of our former students constitute a considerable part of the international fashion world from Milan, Vienna, Lisbon, Amsterdam and Paris to London.
