The philosophy of the course aims to provide a friendly, creative and professional learning environment that enables our students to be inquisitive and experimental within their design thinking and within their practical work. Our students are encouraged to take risks and engage in a wide range of creative projects that seek to support the development of their professional skills and innovative design practice for the global market place.
Our teaching focus is placed upon the development of versatile and adaptable fashion designers who are equipped with the essential skills and knowhow to be able to respond to both conceptual and commercial briefs, underpinned by a sound knowledge of the fashion industry and a critical understanding of the social, cultural, economic, sustainable and environmental factors influencing their professional environment.
Our fashion graduates progress with transferable and holistically formed expertise, which prepare them for postgraduate study or to establish their careers within the global fashion industry equipped with comprehensive employability skills for a highly competitive and constantly changing employment market.
The course begins with an introduction to the discipline, giving you the tools to operate in your specialist design field. Throughout the course of study, each component gives experience in different aspects of design practice and theory, with an emphasis on ethical and sustainable materials and technologies, and the fusion of contemporary and naturally sustainable traditional skills enabling you to build confidence in exploring your subject.
We see this combination of curious enquiry and professional rigour as key to nurturing the designer as a ‘critical professional’, grounded in the specialist field of Fashion Design, but one who understands the need and is equipped to work towards an ethical and sustainable industry. Practical skills are taught throughout the course in workshops and tutorials using traditional and state of the art equipments.
