Course Description

To introduce students to the essential skills of fashion and textile design from sketchpad to catwalk. It includes design, textiles, fashion illustration, garment construction, surface decoration and garment styling. The qualification has the same academic value as three A levels and will give you the academic points which are necessary to get you onto a degree course. Content In the first year you will start by learning the basic skills necessary to develop your creativity. This is regarded as a diagnostic period where we can assess the strengths and weaknesses of individual students. There are separate projects in fashion drawing, pattern making and garment construction, visual studies and input from specialist lecturers in subjects including I.T., photography and art and design history. Later in the first year you will develop your skills by doing fashion specific briefs, and learning about presentation methods etc. In the second year you will use your basic skills to develop a personal style through design research and product development. The course will conclude with the opportunity to design and manufacture a Collection. You will write your own project outline which reflects your interests and career or higher education aspirations. You will work in a group or around 25 students and your weekly timetable will be 16 hours. There will be lectures and demonstrations where we show you how to do things, and lots of practical work in the studio. To become good at what you do practice is essential and we will give you additional work to do outside of your timetabled hours. You should plan to spend at least another 6 hours per week of your own time on course work
