Fashion Design BA (Hons)

The Fashion degree at USW creates the leaders of tomorrow's fashion industry, a group of professionals who can respond to the industry's challenges.

This fashion design course o?ers experience of the fashion industry beyond the university environment and sets a culture, skillset and attributes for life after graduation. You'll engage in design thinking and a process-driven approach to solve complex issues of design, sustainability and commercial success, and develop a strong creative vision.

Based at USW's Cardiff campus, in the heart of the city centre, you will work in new studios that simulate an industry environment. These have a full suite of manufacturing equipment, including industrial sewing machines.

Our graduates work for industry leaders such as Christopher Raeburn, Harrods, Top Shop, Peacocks, Clarks, Roland Mouret, The BBC, The Royal Shakespeare Company, River Island, AllSaints, John Lewis, ASOS, Fred Perry, Victoria's Secret, H&M, NEXT and many more. Graduates have also gone on to establish their own fashion brands, such as Imtayaz Quassim, whose designs have been worn by Justin Bieber, Tyga and Gareth Bale.
