This course provides a unique opportunity to bridge the gap of specialist subject knowledge in fashion in combination with digital media practice.
As a student on this course, you are in a unique position to be able to challenge, redefine and develop Fashion Film as a genre, within the context of a specialist fashion college. You will be supported to develop the narrative of fashion imaging through critical engagement with the genre, collaborative approaches to the development of entrepreneurial ideas and creation of pioneering work in this rapidly developing and under researched area.
Utilising experimental media techniques and technologies, you will produce a range of innovative moving image outcomes. The course provide an opportunity for creatives that are natural storytellers who want to break new ground through the visual representation of fashion narratives. You will exit the course with a new portfolio to support your progression to industry or further research.
This course is based at Lime Grove and John Prince's Street. Lime Grove in Shepherd's Bush, which is west of Holland Park and Notting Hill. Tucked away in a quiet street, our Lime Grove campus is a beautiful brick building with rustic windows and high ceilings. Based in the heart of Oxford Street, John Princes Street (JPS), is our most central site and close to many of London’s main attractions, points of interest and of course, shops.
We are however, planning to move to a new single campus on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in 2023. This is part of a new development for London, prioritising culture, education and innovation, known as East Bank.
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. To develop inventive, assertive ideas that challenge social and political agendas. And we give them the skills, opportunities – and above all, the freedom – to put those ideas into practice.
