Course content

This course challenges the boundaries of traditional fashion design and manufacture to ensure cutting-edge practice is balanced with commercial strategy.

You will be equipped with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the international fashion and fashion marketing business, enabling you to integrate these skills into the creative design and making process.

Fashion is a creative, project-based course that focuses on the dynamic between creativity, technology and business awareness. It develops the critical, technical and professional skills necessary to advance practice and stimulate innovation in the fashion industry. You will explore the boundaries of creative fashion design and develop your skills utilising a range of prototyping technologies. The course will challenge you to re-examine the underpinning methodologies and ways of working that characterise creative practice in fashion.

You will benefit from our unique postgraduate ethos of encouraging collaboration with other postgraduate practitioners to gain a multidisciplinary perspective. Throughout the course, you will develop new experimental approaches to fashion and/or textile design, strengthening your own practice and developing new skills. Final project outcomes range from traditional catwalk collections to installations, interactive experience, exhibitions, virtual design, products, promotional packages, magazines, videos or websites.

We encourage you to make final projects which integrate multi-disciplinary perspectives, for instance catwalk collections that involve installation or the development of fashion brand campaigns involving digital media and 3D film.
