Months of entry
The course covers a vastly changing environment. As a broad subject area this course allows students to explore a varied range of fashion and textile directions. It offers continuing or recent graduates opportunities to enhance their knowledge, skills, creativity and employment prospects, through imaginative enquiry into different fashion, textile and surface platforms and processes.
Students will normally have a degree in a related subject (Fashion Design, Textile or Surface Design, Textile Crafts), may be seeking to develop fresh approaches to their subject (creative pattern cutting, design for fashion, interiors or exterior architectural surfaces, future materials, 3D printed textiles or surfaces, advancing their weave, embroidery, knit or print skills, or textile art), or may wish to build their portfolio for fashion, textile or surface roles in industry in the future. A portfolio of work or ideas is required for subject entry.
The expectation is that students will seek to enter the fashion textile and surface industries into roles such as: buyers working on commercial projects, fashion designers, fashion merchandisers, trend and colour forecasters and consultants, textile and surface design managers, material specifiers for interiors and exteriors, colour and material designers for the automotive industry, curators, community craft engagement practitioners, or they may wish to advance their research expertise in their current subject area or role by developing proposals for further postgraduate research.
