Course Introduction

The course is designed for students who are interested in fashion design, but for a variety of reasons, such as finance or family commitments, cannot study full time. The programme is divided into clear vocational building blocks that aim to provide a balanced educational experience and which will develop a sound knowledge combined with a realistic and practical understanding of the demands of the industry. This course will equip you with the relevant professional, academic, communication and business skills that you will need to be employed by the industry in a graduate level position. You will explore the concepts of fashion design and innovation, and will develop your critical understanding of creative design in the fashion industry through research, analysis, design development and product realisation through 2'dimensional and 3'dimensional experimentation.
