Are you inspired by the catwalk and obsessed by the latest fashion trends? Our BA (Hons) Fashion programme combines creativity with commercial awareness, and is designed to help you develop the skills and knowledge needed to pursue exciting opportunities in the fast-moving global fashion industry.

Our BA (Hons) Fashion with foundation year degree is designed to introduce you to a range of aspects of the fashion industry. It provides the chance to enhance your employment prospects in a range of fashion careers, including fashion design, buying and retail, merchandising, forecasting, and styling.

Starting with foundation studies that offer a structured introduction to a wide range of materials, processes and techniques, we’ll support you as you develop your own line of visual enquiry, explore different areas of art and design, and develop a sound portfolio of creative work.

As you progress, you’ll have the opportunity to enhance your knowledge and understanding of forecasted trends, fashion design history, commercial design and manufacturing processes, and material understanding.

Our experienced and dedicated staff will support you as you develop skills in pattern cutting, garment manufacture, fashion illustration and visualisation techniques, and the application of surface design and embellishment. We’ll encourage you to balance your individual creative expression with industry awareness for the production of innovative fashion outcomes.

You’ll also have the chance to use the latest reports from the Worth Global Style Network, and develop your appreciation of the design timeline, the trend prediction industry, and consumer research.
