Fashion Textiles - London Metropolitan University

**Why study this course?** This course enables you to use creative visualisation and drawing to develop design concepts alongside finished samples and products. You’ll develop research and practical skills, giving you a thorough understanding of the fashion process from concept to realisation. **More about this course** This Fashion Textiles BA (Hons) degree will prepare you for employment in the exciting sector of textile design for apparel. Textile designers for fashion products work for fashion brands and houses, design studios, textile manufacturers and as independent practitioners. It's a very large and diverse field of creative work, always hungry for new talent and full of opportunities for graduates. Textiles for fashion can be very traditional in material, manufacture, colour and textural design but it can also be highly innovative using advanced, cutting-edge materials and technologies. In the sector there is an increasing use of hybrid materials and approaches, incorporating metals, natural and synthetic polymers, glass, ceramic and other component elements into bold and innovative textiles for fashion design. There is also increasing research into and adaptation of historic materials and processes for textile design, where the value of a different approach founded in more local procurement, slower and more careful design and fabrication, with more thought given to the longevity and durability of designed products, has become recognised.
