Course content

MA Fashion Design Technology (Womenswear) is a DISRUPTIVE, knowingly transgressive and deliberately subversive course that arms students with a unique set of skills to inform new definitions and notions of fashion practice. MA Womenswear is a diverse anti-fragile ecosystem; a community of critical thinkers, extreme creatives, researchers, and practitioners. We are responsible, accountable and resilient.

MA Fashion Design Technology (Womenswear) students will develop their work, both conceptually and technically, through investigative and experimental research into a range of processes and materials. Students can access specialist facilities for hand crafted and digitized manufacturing processes within the College's five sites. In addition to the in-house facilities students will have the opportunity to collaborate with their peers and industry partners to further their skills beyond design in areas such as sourcing, manufacture and project management, media and marketing.

Students are supported to develop collaborations with industry specialists and international fabric suppliers, a process that builds important contacts for the future. Students have the potential to incorporate collaborations with textile and production professionals throughout the course.

LCF’s Move

London College of Fashion, UAL, leads the world in fashion business, media and design education. We’ve been nurturing creative talent for over a century, offering courses in all things fashion. With our philosophy of open and inclusive education, we encourage students to examine the past and question the present.
