Whether you are a recent graduate or a professional in fashion and related industries, such as marketing, journalism, photography, film and pattern cutting, Fashion Innovation and Realisation MA allows you to advance your current skills and expertise and engage in an advanced level of fashion-related academic study.

This flexible, modular programme will allow you to develop your skills, experience and expertise through experimental, innovative practice and fashion theory. The programme then switches to ‘realisation’ modules, achieved through collaborative and interdisciplinary practice, and a studio culture supported by lectures, seminars and visiting lecturers. Wherever possible, you will be able to access undergraduate inductions and basic workshops to revisit skills or investigate new technologies for your study.

Your studies will culminate in the development and presentation of a final major project where you will present the outcomes of your individual learning plan.

Fashion is a mature subject within the Liverpool School of Art and Design and you will have access to the latest digital equipment as well as traditional fashion techniques that are seeing a re-emergence in the fashion sector. The facilities available in our John Lennon Art and Design Building will provide all the equipment you need to develop, create and photograph work.
