Course content

MA FDT Menswear at London College of Fashion has built an international reputation for design that asks questions and presents unexpected solutions to the mainstays of fashion design and garment construction. It is a course where innovation and craft intersect at the crossroads of modernity to produce pioneering menswear designers.

Students investigate their own practice to define design methodologies that encompass key concepts of fabric, cut and silhouette. Based on rigorous research and analytical thinking, the course encourages fresh perspectives in menswear design.

Students come from a wide range of backgrounds bringing a breadth of experience to their peer group and discipline. Emerging from a diversity of practice and theory based undergraduate studies, including Womenswear, Fine Art, Architecture and Semiotics, they are able to explore the potential of their transferable skills and knowledge into menswear design methodologies.

Alumni have gone on to set up successful design labels, work for international brands or continue their research to PhD level. This is the course where menswear talent is nurtured and refined to produce some of the most forward thinking creatives in menswear design today.
