Prepare yourself for an exciting career as a specialist in fashion design. Fashion is one of the world's biggest industries and we passionately believe it is about more than just the commercially driven production and promotion of new collections. It is a reflection of society, identity and culture, and it is also a powerful protagonist for change. We will show you how to challenge the limitations of fashion as the manifestation of temporary consumer trends. You will learn to sculpt with fabric and create fashion designs in response to market forces, technical innovations, body language, the senses, ethics, arts and culture. We are committed to providing a course that responds to your own personality, interests and creativity. That is why we offer opportunities to work on arts and industry informed briefs, and live projects, equipping you with a portfolio of professional skills that open doors to a range of careers in fashion. At the heart of our course you will also find a strong understanding of the cultural, ethical and environmental concerns in the contemporary fashion industry. The global fashion industry is looking for professionals who can offer a wide range of expertise and our course reflects this demand. You will concentrate on 2D and 3D skills, along with understanding how to articulate ideas to an off shore manufacturer. Key areas include research of ideas, design, the articulation of ideas, and 3D outcomes. There will be a high computer-aided design (CAD) emphasis on 2D work allowing for a professional finish, while fabric and form will be explored to ensure applicable 3D outcomes are achieved. **FASHION STUDIOS** You will have access to brand new facilities including the latest machinery and cutting tables in our fashion studios.
