Fashion Design (Contemporary Costume) Blackpool and the Fylde College

Undergraduate

Awarded by: Lancaster University

The Fashion Design (Contemporary Costume) degree course at Blackpool and the Fylde College is positioned at the interface of high fashion and creative costume. The degree is unique in that it has a dual focus from the earliest stages of the course and is taught alongside the Fashion Design Degree in the skill building stages. It does however also facilitate students who have a specific desire to work exclusively in either the fashion or costume industries.

In the second year of study you will be asked to confirm your final degree pathway either BA Hons Fashion Design, or BA Hons Fashion Design (Contemporary Costume) this allows you to specialise in your chosen field in your final projects and gain the qualification that is the most suited to your future career. From catwalk to music videos, creative fashion communicates with a wide range of audiences and the course encourages innovative approaches through all projects and aims to stretch and challenge your imagination whilst developing your practical abilities.

The unique selling point of this course is the freedom to experiment across specialist areas. The fashion industry is made up of many different facets and you will be encouraged to develop critical enquiry in all these different areas of study before deciding on a final degree pathway. Both our current and past students have been positive about this aspect of the course and have enjoyed the variety provided by the different projects, ultimately the advantage is that our graduates are perfectly positioned for a career in their specialist field.
