Course summary

The Fashion with Textiles Design (Hons) BA degree is aimed at students who intend to pursue careers as Fashion and/or Textiles Designers and involves both conceptual and trend driven design work through experimentation with creative cutting techniques, traditional pattern cutting, textiles, research, illustration, business and manufacturing skills and culminates in a final professional collection show and portfolio outcome exhibition.

The Fashion with Textiles Design (Hons) BA offers you a nurturing environment where you will develop industry standard skills in both fashion and textiles. You will expand your skills in pattern cutting, production techniques, CAD and design. We will give you what you need to set you on your way to become an independent creative thinker who can come up with innovative solutions in an ever evolving industry.

Thanks to our small classes and commitment we can achieve this together by providing each individual student with one to one tuition time every week. We pride ourselves on our commitment to our students. We recognise that giving each student substantial personal support is key to helping them get the most out of the course and themselves and help them successfully enter into the international world of fashion and textiles.

All second-year students receive a Personal Development Plan (PDP): a self-analysis process that involves invaluable individual contact hours with a lecturer to help develop the student's leadership and management skills, find the best internship and identify the right career path.
