Course content

​The MA Fashion Design course promotes innovative design thinking and cultivates an ethos of experimentation befitting postgraduate study in a school of Art and Design. It aims to generate unique responses to market trends and technological demands, nurturing an understanding of contemporary design within global contexts.

Within Cardiff School of Art and Design you will be encouraged to explore imaginative fusions between materials and technology to develop your individual creative identity. Throughout this process, you will be embedding your designs within a conceptual framework that embraces social, cultural and ethical perspectives.
Creative collaborations with postgraduate students from a range of disciplines within CSAD are nurtured, working towards a design collection that incorporates garment and accessories, brand styling, promotion and curatorial practices.
The emphasis will be on an evolving research trajectory in the preparation of a professional portfolio that can attract careers with international brands, generate successful design labels and also prepare for further postgraduate research.
