London Metropolitan University

Course Introduction

With work placements at Alexander McQueen, Illustrated People, Monsoon, the British Museum, Beyond Retro and more, this course will give you your first taste of a fashion'forward career. You can study textile design for interiors, fashion or accessories with us, and you choose to produce garments, products or a specialist fabric collection. You can experiment with digital textile printing and laser cutting as well as learning the more traditional approaches and there are opportunities to collaborate with fellow students studying jewellery or fashion degrees across a wide range of projects. This, combined with our industry contacts and cutting'edge art school location, means that our graduates are working for top companies, including designing the 'Florence and Fred' range for Tesco. You will have numerous opportunities to enter competitions, make visits to industry and trade shows (including abroad) and to exhibit your work, leading to a work'ready portfolio by the time of your graduation show. Added value: Our students work on live projects with clients including Ligne Roset, Marks and Spencer and many more.
