Overview

You will be introduced to the academic, professional, industrial and commercial challenges of design practice. There are opportunities to work with companies on live projects, work placements and competition awards, and the course has unparalleled links with the UK and global apparel industry.

The first year provides grounding in fashion and design through practical, creative and technical classes and projects. The second year is more focused, with the emphasis on experimentation, in-depth project research and 3D development. You will develop new skills such as tailoring and fashion prediction, and work on collaborative projects with industry. The major project in the third year gives you the opportunity to set your own briefs and design and produce a final collection, as well as entering national and international competitions.
