BA Fashion Communication is for students who are interested in the diverse and ever-expanding field of fashion media. The fashion industry requires quality content in the form of words and image and expertise in fashion history. This course will nurture you to become innovative, informed, responsible writers, communicators and promoters, central to the industry's future.
BA Fashion Communication offers three pathways: Fashion Communication and Promotion; Fashion History and Theory; and Fashion Journalism. All pathways have the communication of fashion at their core. Each offers a unique combination of fashion awareness, communication, historical and theoretical studies. The Fashion History and Theory pathway will develop your understanding of the history of western fashion since the Renaissance. It will also provide you with a sound theoretical framework within which to analyse this knowledge.
BA Fashion Communication is taught alongside BA Fashion. This offers you, as communicators, first-hand insight into fashion design in the making. During your time on the course, you will work closely with peers on both courses. This allows you to instigate and nurture professional relationships which will inform your future industry networks. All aspects of the course relate to current professional and critical practice in the fashion industries. Some projects are client-led or may include participation in live competitions. The interdisciplinary nature of curriculum is designed to provide a microcosm of the professional fashion design world. The nature of this work will give you valuable insight into your future role in the industry.
