Course content

You know what’s hot and what’s not. The latest brand, colour or trend of the moment could be gone tomorrow. A career in the fast-paced world of fashion and luxury is more exciting than ever and as the heart of this thriving industry, London is the perfect place to be. We want to help you to make your mark on the fashion landscape.

You will develop an in-depth and critical understanding of the dimensions, processes and opportunities involved in the inception of a new fashion or luxury business. We will also teach you about the challenges of fashion and luxury business creation, particularly focusing on the opportunities within today’s digitally-focused and globally interlinked markets.

You will explore best practice in exciting areas of study including generating ideas for new ventures, where your creativity will be pushed and explored. Essential to any creative business in today’s digital world is a clear understanding of legal establishment and protection for your products. We will also explore business funding and planning, both of which are key to getting a business successfully off the ground.

We will guide you through both research and practice-based activities to evolve your own creative thinking. You will have the creative autonomy to research, develop and explore in a stimulating interdisciplinary environment. You will also benefit from our industry connections and extensive expertise in the fashion and luxury sector.
