This is a specialist course, providing opportunities for students to develop in-depth textile design expertise for the fashion industry. Investigating and providing new creative directions for fashion forward, luxury and innovative design approaches for fashion material culture. We aim to produce versatile fashion specialists through the courses’ philosophy of exploring and combining a broad range of practical skills. Allowing investigation of materials and technical approaches across print, stitch, embellishment and knit, as well as complimentary skills in CAD, design communication, and 3D product realisation.
A strong emphasis is placed on nurturing research, conceptual, creative and technical skills, coupled with the development of essential fashion skills such as pattern cutting, construction and fashion illustration. We aim to encourage you to become conversant in a broad fashion context, whilst honing your specialist textile design skills. The course encourages you to show a commitment to the practice of design that is forward thinking, innovative and original.
The course believes on creating an environment of choice, allowing you to determine your own creative direction. You will have the option to choose or mix technical specialisms, in many differing contexts, allowing you to direct your studies as appropriate to your style, context, technical skills and market focus.
