This course has been developed in consultation with leading fashion retailers and represents a new direction in the integration of fashion retail management, fashion marketing, international consumer behaviour and supply chain planning.

We recently invested over £4 million in new laboratories, exhibition areas and student spaces, as well as new facilities with the latest technology for weaving, knitting, digital printing, coloration and colour communication. You’ll be able to develop your practice in well-equipped studios and purpose-built computer clusters so you can build your skills on both PC and Mac as well as computer-aided deign (CAD) software.

We also have an impressive range of resources you can use for research. We house the M&S Company Archive including documents, advertising, photos, films, clothing and merchandise from throughout Marks & Spencer’s history, offering a fascinating insight into the changing nature of our culture over time.

Course content

The cultural reception, dissemination, promotion and eventual disposal of a fashion product within international markets involves an astoundingly complex chain of activities.
