Course content

The MDes in Fashion and Textiles at the Glasgow School of Art is an advanced skills postgraduate programme designed to meet the ambitions of motivated Fashion and Textile Graduates who wish to extend, develop and hone their individual 'design signature'.

The programme attracts and welcomes two different 'types' of Fashion Design Student each with a characteristically different approach.

One can broadly be described as 'Textile (or surface) led' with a design approach considered to be from the 'Textile-outwards'. The other can broadly be described as 'Silhouette (or shape) led' with a design approach considered to be from the 'Silhouette-inwards'.
