Course content

With a focus on fashion communication, this programme invites you to respond to a global fashion industry in a state of flux. Our practice and research-based course will challenge you to explore, question and evolve in an energetic and collaborative working environment. Our taught MA will help you develop a focused enquiry leading to a major project using some of the best traditional and state-of-the-art facilities in the UK, encouraged and supported by world-class academic and technical staff.

Fashion is both a global business and a powerful cultural force; it shapes us economically, socially and personally, and our course enables you to explore innovative communication and design responses that disrupt the fashion system.

This course offers a highly practical approach for ambitious students who want to challenge the fashion communication industry at the highest level. Drawing on the expertise of a diverse range of fashion communication and design practitioners and academics, guest lecturers and technical advisers, you will enhance your knowledge and skills through a series of projects using practice-led research and supportive written work.

Our London based £80 million Grove building offers access to state-of-the-art facilities and specialist workshops. Here you can explore digital and analogue technologies through a combination of workshop enquiry and in-depth research supported by some of the UK’s leading practitioners and technical experts.

You will graduate with a portfolio providing you with a platform to advance your fashion career in new and challenging directions whether it’s setting up a new enterprise, working for a global brand or disrupting the status quo.
