University of the Arts London

Course Introduction

This course enables individuals to produce high quality and innovative work through illustration, design, cutting and modern manufacturing. Students are supported to develop collaborations with industry specialists and international fabric suppliers, a process that not only builds important contacts for the future but one that enriches student experience and refines design sensibility. Using diverse production techniques, from couture craftsmanship to futuristic experimentation, students are able to explore their own perspectives to form the basis of their collection; this also has the potential to incorporate a further specialism such as embroidery, knitwear or digital concepts.
