    Programme

    The first year projects are about developing skills and imagination - how to look, record, develop, and make. The overall theme is a structured approach to understanding the creative process and what this means to the designer. The Cultural Studies programme compliments the core programme and enables you to see current practice and product in a range of relevant contexts.

    The second year is about the reality of fashion business and how various aspects work. You will be offered a range of projects and competitions that are usually sponsored, or live. The projects ask you to work to specific requirements - a season, brand, range requirement, or perhaps to design and make a range that extends or develops a current fashion product.
    This experience is further enhanced with the work placement - an opportunity to spend a term working with a chosen designer or company, learning about real professional practice and allowing you to gain first hand experience of the current employment market.

    During year three you will decide to format your own project - typically a collection of fashion garments. You work as individuals, project managing with staff who are briefed by you on the chosen area of study. At the end of the programme there are opportunities for you to showcase your work to industry professionals.
