Fashion Design

Explore all aspects of fashion design, from the latest processes to marketing your work. Launch your collection at Graduate Fashion Week and our annual Graduate Fashion Show, and Degree Show. Enjoy out-of-hours access to all our industry-standard art facilities, with full training provided. Our BA (Hons) Fashion Design will take you out of your comfort zone, and help you forge a fresh identity as a fashion designer. You will be free to experiment with your own designs from the very start of the course, receiving regular support and feedback on your work from our teaching staff, who were rated joint 1st in the UK for ‘satisfied with teaching’ and 2nd for ‘satisfied with feedback’ in the Guardian University Guide 2017. Our commitment to feedback will help you reflect on your work and develop your own unique style, making you stand out from the crowd. Our modules – taught by specialist tutors – take in all aspects of the design process, including the latest techniques in pattern cutting, draping, textiles and digital media, but will also allow you to explore business practices such as marketing and trend forecasting. As well developing your own individual approach to design work and discovering new directions for self-expression, you will graduate with a broad knowledge of the fashion industry, benefit from networking and collaboration within Cambridge School of Art (with, for example, photography students) and have the chance to explore your entrepreneurial side. With out-of-hours access to all of Cambridge School of Art’s industry-standard facilities - not just the fashion workshops - you can approach your work with flexibility. We’ll provide training on any process that you want to use, as and when you need it. You will have the chance to find placements and internships with high-profile fashion houses including Alexander McQueen, French Connection and Vivienne Westwood; attend trade fairs, such as Pure in London (the UK’s leading fashion buying event) or the fabric and trend show Premiere Vision in Paris; and visit suppliers and other businesses connected with the fashion industry. Many of our students go on to establish their own labels or work for fashion houses and other well-known brands: Micaela Sapinho is now Creative Director of her own label, and has twice shown her collections at Lisbon Fashion Week Thanh Cong Vu has gone on to establish his own brand since graduating. During the course his designs were shown at Pure and also featured in Urban Coco magazine Priscilla Acquah Arhin (2015 graduate) is now a Textile Designer with Samsonite in Belgium Agnieszka Zabek (2014) now works as Apparel Designer with Reebok Tracie Sell (2011) is Head of Menswear at Bolongaro Trevor in London By the end of the course, you too will have a new collection ready to show to the fashion industry at Graduate Fashion Week in London, and also to the public at our own Graduate Fashion Show and Degree Show.
