This study aims to develop a curriculum that applies AI technology to fashion-design education based on a cooperative system with industry. We considered prior research and theory on education and Project based Learning (PBL) teaching methods that have incorporated AI in domestic and foreign design majors over the past five years using academic journals, and internet data. Next, a Focus Group Interview (FGI) was conducted. Five experts in the field of fashion-design education met with companies to discern problems at the company sites and to discuss solving those problems using AI. Finally, an industry-linked PBL curriculum was derived that reflected the expert FGI opinions and that corresponded to the university's educational environment, IT business conditions, and the needs of students majoring in fashion design.
