It is essential in this time of creative ambiguity that we develop and empower the individual. Therefore, this entrepreneurial course will recruit ambitious envisioned designers to work on their creative expression through personal research, process development and informed professionalism. This course is delivered by informed menswear design professionals. The team provide a learning environment that is supportive, challenging and defined by students' application proposals in relation to either a projected or existing opportunity within menswear or the design related industries. Through self-directed and set projects they will generate original and contextualised ideas, technique and process that establishes them as influential and informed menswear design professional capable of working at the highest levels of the international menswear and design related industry. It is important that our students establish their aspirations within a global design context, in order to achieve a sustainable career path and influence fashion, where boundaries are constantly subject to social, economic and technological flux.
Applicants should have a minimum of a lower second class honours degree (2:2) in fashion, textiles or a design-related subject area and substantial relevant work experience. Applicants are required to submit a portfolio. If this does not contain sufficient menswear content, applicants are required to then create a virtual portfolio of three design projects that best evidence individual inspiration and how this is developed through the process of designing. Applicants must also identify, in writing, a specific area of personal interest that you believe will create a positive contribution to the menswear industry and which you envisage studying in depth whilst on the course. Selected applicants invited to interview (who have not done sufficient menswear) will be sent a project which entails creating six menswear outfits. The work is to include a visual portfolio, inspirational design development ideas, including fabrics research and techniques, line- up with illustrations and flats including final fabrics and colour palette, working toile or a single finished garment. If your first language is not English you should have an IELTS 6.0 with at least 5.5 in each element. Applicants are required to submit one academic reference.
