Fashion Design BA (Hons)

The range of the fashion industry is reflected in this course, which encourages you to experiment with designs, materials and garment making processes while increasing your knowledge of the latest textile technologies and processes.

You will develop your own individual style as you explore related disciplines such as photography, screen-printing and illustration, and will also have the opportunity to respond to real industry briefs and implement live projects with leading fashion designers.

The course also looks at the relationship between fashion design, history and contemporary debates in fashion and the wider visual world, a relationship that will allow you to explore your own creative direction.

If you have completed an appropriate foundation degree or HND, you can join this course at stage three.
