The study aims to develop the students’ skills in the Fashion Accessories Course by recruiting the various aesthetic properties of felt fabric. Innovative designs were created with different inspiration themes to produce a variety of fashion accessories, including necklaces, handbags, hats, and slippers. The study follows the experimental development method, the study identifies the felt fabric: its manufacture and properties, extracting the aesthetics and technical methods of felt. The experiment was conducted on a sample of female students in the Fashion Design Program at the University of Nizwa, Fall semester 23/2024. Through the study, the students applied four different topics, for example designing a women’s handbag inspired by a modern art painting, and contemporary necklaces inspired by Omani traditional motifs, the designs adopted an unconventional style. The products of the experiment’ students are analyzed in terms of achieving the aesthetic values through the design elements and principles, in addition achieving the utilitarian function. The students’ opinions are measured after the experiment ends. The significance of the study is to enable students to develop their mental and handcraft skills to implement products with remarkable designs with precise techniques that can be produced and marketed widely as entrepreneurship projects. The study recommends investing in college courses, specially design programs, in enriching students’ innovative thinking to produce functional artistic products that meet the needs of the labor market, and conducting more innovative developmental experiments for students in the Fashion Design Program at the University of Nizwa.
