BA (Hons) Fashion is a Creative Skillset accredited course, based within large integrated fashion studio spaces, with access to the drawing studios, digital design workshops and the Media Resource Centre. You will explore creativity within design, innovation within pattern cutting and refinement within garment manufacture. You will be taught to design, cut and manufacture high quality, original garments to couture levels of craftsmanship, supported by an expert team of academics and technicians who have a wealth of industry experience. Specialist workshops are delivered by guest tailors from Savile Row and you will be set live projects by designers from brands such as Hardy Amies, Chloé, Mulberry, Topshop, Nicole Farhi and Marks & Spencer. You will graduate with a final collection showcasing your individual style and approach to design, which will be considered for the catwalk at Graduate Fashion Week. Recent selectors for the show include Betty Jackson CBE and Hilary Alexander OBE. This course includes a Year 0, which promotes developing practical, technical and creative skills and confidence for the remainder of the course. Building on your prior experience, you will be introduced to some of our workshops to assist your skill development, with an increasing emphasis on professional standards and independent study. The course places emphasis on your personal commitment to study, while supporting you in your progression. The Diploma in Creative Professional Development offers undergraduate students the chance to spend a year between Year 2 and 3 of their course exploring their employability options through a structured programme of input sessions and work-based learning. The aim of the course is to provide you with an opportunity to gain industry insight, develop your employability skills through a series of supported experiences, expand your network and build your confidence in the workplace.
