Course Description

BA (Hons) Fashion Design Technology: Womenswear provides graduates with the necessary combination of creative, technical, intellectual and communication skills needed to be successful within the competitive field of womenswear fashion design.  

What to expect 

  • The course is structured to ensure that students have a strong foundation of core skills in design and realisation and in fashion theory. Through a series of challenging projects, students will be enabled to question, test and redefine their approaches.   

  • Projects set out to encourage experimentation, critical thinking and independence.  By the end of the course, students will have developed their own individual aesthetic and design identity and will be able to communicate this through a strong and unified body of work. 

  • Studio practice will be underpinned by a strong theoretical understanding so that students are able to communicate the concepts, motives and values of their studio practice.  This prepares students for professional life and for postgraduate study. 

  • The course allows collaborative work with peers from different backgrounds to share experiences. 

  • By the time students finish the course, they will be fully equipped to succeed as a creative designer in the challenging international field of womenswear.
