They say that fashion demands an eye for style. If that’s the case, fashion marketing demands one eye on style, one on hard business and at least two more in the back of your head! Others may create the garment but it is you, the creative marketer, the skilful strategist, who will turn it into the must-have, must-wear commodity. You may not be the creator but what we’ll teach you on our new Fashion Marketing course is an art in its own right. We’ll teach you how to retail, brand and merchandise fashion. You’ll discover promotional and sales strategies, learning how to take a new fashion product from the concept stage all the way to the high street store. You’ll do this in close collaboration with your fashion design and fashion textiles student colleagues at UEL. This is crucial for you to gain the clearest, broadest picture of an industry that, as marketers, you’ll need to understand inside out

The assessment strategy is focused both on good quality written output in the form of essays, and to also demonstrate an understanding of the financial aspects of fashion marketing. The second year will also include practical projects, specifically: Fashion Visual Merchandising, and Fashion Trend Analysis. The ability to make professional, informative and persuasive presentations is key, as is the ability to elicit salient information from a wide variety of sources and materials. Therefore the journal element of assessment is designed to practice and enhance students’ ability to determine key facts and their relevance.
