  • Course description
    The expertise and specialisms of the permanent staff at LCF and the University of Warwick will be augmented by a programme of visiting speakers/practitioners who are engaged in various aspects of pertinent practice and production. You will benefit from the particular expertise of these two institutions whilst LCF can provide not only theoretical input but also unique insight into practice-based work in costume design and making.

    Whilst there are a number of MAs in Film Studies, this is a unique course in its combination of the study of fashion and film. For the past twenty years there has been a growing interest in this interdisciplinary subject area. There have been various international fashion and film festivals, starting with the Florence Biennale in 1998, which involved all the leading Italian designers and was sponsored by the Versace family amongst others.

    Pamela Church Gibson, Course Director, has been involved in all these activities, recently curating and opening the Film and Fashion season at the Cinemateket in Oslo (July 2007). Research Methods and Contextual Studies are common across LCF’s MA framework and will enable you to work alongside students and concepts from other disciplines. In addition, you will also have the opportunity to learn and socialise through a regular International Film Club. This encourages a better understanding and analysis of text, image and music, other cultures narrative and genre styles.

    Career Prospects

    Masters students have an acknowledged advantage in the employment market, obtaining work in a wide range of vocational and academic fields related to the fashion and film industries. This MA also provides excellent preparation for higher level research degrees (MPhil or PhD), with an increasing number of graduates undertaking research in fashion related subjects in practice or theory or entering education as lecturers.
