The BA (Hons) Fashion Design degree is designed to reflect contemporary practice and to inspire you to succeed in this fast moving industry.

Fashion expresses our values, culture and society. More importantly, it influences and shapes them. So when you become a fashion designer, you become an influencer.

You will explore your individual talents through the professional design process, which creates freedom with constraints and reflectivity with spontaneity. The course embeds innovation and risk taking right into the design process from concept to final product, with consideration for commercial viability and creativity at its core.

You will become multi-skilled, flexible, resourceful and creative fashion practitioners with well-developed transferable and interpersonal skills. You will work within a creative environment with well-equipped workshops and studios that support and create our vibrant student community where personal talent and individual development are shared, exchanged and nurtured.

You’ll also gain an understanding of the ethical issues facing the fashion industry. So you graduate as a responsible designer ready to shape the industry.
