Do you have a talent for turning textiles into works of art? Then why not make the most of your skills by working towards an MA in Fashion Textiles? We can help you explore your technique through applied print design (both traditional silk screen and digital) and surface decoration through applied machine embroidery, needle felting and garment construction. You can also develop your millinery skills thanks to our wide range of fabrics, materials and haberdashery.

With the outstanding facilities we have available, as well as our expert teaching staff, you'll quickly develop the knowledge and skills to produce truly beautiful patterns. We believe strongly in cross-discipline approaches, which is why we allow students from all art subjects to work together in inspiring designs and opening up to new methods. Make sure you have the skills to make a profession out of your passion by taking your love of fashion textiles to the next level.

Course outline

We actively encourage mixing different approaches, materials and techniques to create innovative fabric, such as print combined with embroidery, with opportunities to utilise laser cutting to create new fabrics and potential applique techniques. Our strong links with traditional Fine Art print techniques allow students to research and explore the graphic and textural potential of these alongside contemporary fashion and textile design.

There will be three studio modules throughout the first two terms. The first will look at researching aspects of fashion textile, experiencing the range of processes and materials available. This will lead to creation of a range of studio project proposals, equipped with a comprehensive understanding of the creative potential within the department. Finally, there will be practical MA Project Module which will culminate in an exhibition of work in an appropriate media.

The course allows great flexibility within the project proposals. These may range from full garment collections to fabric creation for clothing, printed fashion fabrics or accessories.

Graduate destinations

You'll be prepared for a range of careers in fashion and textile design, including working with pattern cutting and pattern design in all garment trades as well as film and theatre costume production. You might wish to enter garment manufacturing or textile fabric design, working in samples for mass manufacture. No matter what you decide to do, from interior surface designs to textile and fashion prints, your qualification will ensure you are ready for it.

Introduction

A Fashion has an outstanding reputation sustained over more than three decades and is the only course that shows at London Fashion Week on the official London Fashion Week schedule The profile of its alumni as design directors internationally and as own label designers is unrivalled.

Content

MA Fashion has extensive international links, and graduates practise professionally at the forefront of the international fashion industry.

MA Fashion is fast moving. Students build up momentum in their design work which replicates working practices in the industry.

This postgraduate course is about leading not following, accepting criticism, learning and moving on. It is not a hobby. It has an international profile second to none.

MA Fashion is offered in four pathways that are interrelated and structured around the core subject of fashion. It is part of the Fashion programme.

With an emphasis on research, market intelligence and industry awareness, MA Fashion believes that truly relevant, innovative design is not purely a creative activity involving designers in the artistic process – it also recognises the ability to analyse markets, the industry and society in general. Designers or journalists must not only be conversant with the broad fashion context; they must also be able to diagnose markets accurately and to communicate with colleagues and management.

MA Fashion emphasises presentation and communication skills. Students must not only create the right product for the market but also be good communicators capable of convincing colleagues that their ideas are based on a mature understanding of markets and competitors.

You’ll get involved in the debates generated by our Professional Speakers Talks, related projects, and the inter-pathway critiques that help you develop your critical and communication skills. These activities, together with the range and reach of staff connections with the industry, bring excitement and breadth to the course.

Structure

MA Fashion lasts 45 weeks full-time, structured in two units over five terms (which may vary in length) commencing in late October.

A feature of the course is the interrelated nature of the five pathways offered. You will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with other disciplines just as you need to in the professional world.

MA Fashion benefits from the special atmosphere created by students from a wide variety of disciplines, backgrounds and nationalities – all of them committed to fashion – working together in close proximity.

Students study one of four pathways:

Womenswear Fashion

Menswear Fashion

Knitwear Fashion

Textiles for Fashion

Introduction

Over recent decades the fashion and textile industries has been making changes; responding to enviromental and social needs; publishing corporate social reports and working with industry bodies and NGOs. Yet the Rana Plaza disaster in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2013 was tragedy for the workers, their families, the country and the industries, and an imperative for new thinking, new practice, and fresh ethics. It is a horrific milestone for fashion manufacture, communication, consumer awareness and industry responsibilities. The industries are now reaching out to governments, NGOs, charities, unions and radical thinkers for advice and support. They are accountable for their current and future ethics. Without doubt it is time for change in which education is a crucial contributor to the new solutions, and alternative futures for the industries.

The new MSc Ethics in Fashion (See http://www.postgraduate.hw.ac.uk/prog/msc-ethics-in-fashion/ ) is a research led, taught programme, focussed on analysing and understanding the industry, whilst mapping the changes in practice, monitoring the voices and diversity of stakeholders in the supply-chain. The programme offers a chance for ethically aware graduates and established professionals to refresh and extend their knowledge and skillset. An escalating need for an Ethics in Fashion programme has been identified, and Heriot-Watt University is in a unique position with subject specific research faculty, global industry links, outstanding fashion and textiles facilities and an enviable pastoral location, with strong transport connections.

"A Masters of Science on Ethics in Fashion is exactly what was missing in fashion education. Sustainability and ethics are key issues for this industry. Those who are not able respect people and the environment in their supply chain cannot stay in the sector for long. Today, all major players have a CSR officer integrated in their business, a profile that didn’t exist until a few years ago. Having this MSc is a true work of innovation." Simone Cipriani, Head, ITC Ethical Fashion Initiative (United Nations)

Our students

The taught programme has been created for those wanting to work, or already working in the fashion and textiles industries, in design, sourcing management, buying, journalism and corporate affairs. The qualification provides a set of fresh perspectives and insights for an existing first degree qualification, or relevant experience in any of the above areas or similar for those wanting to be part of the dynamic changing industries.

Industry links

The School of Textiles and Design, and the research staff have strong global industry and NGO links in design, corporate social responsibility reporting and corporate affairs, social enterprise. In addition teaching staff are Fellows of the Fellowship of 500, in the Ethical Fashion Forum. There are both courses, and research opportunities to work with local and international industry.

The programme has been designed to utilise selected core postgraduate courses offered within the School and introducing courses specific to Ethics in Fashion, thus encouraging inter-disciplinary participation and discourse, and membership of the a growing research community.

"There is a growing demand from consumers that the clothes they choose to wear haven’t been produced in sweatshops. Tragedies such as the Rana Plaza garment factory collapse in Bangladesh have only heightened public concern. This is why it is critical that fashion colleges and universities are incorporating ethics into their programs of work. Ethical sourcing is increasingly becoming the norm for the clothing & footwear industry and we see this only growing in the future." Simon McRae, National Manager, Ethical Clothing Australia

Objectives

- Analyse the ethics in supply-chain practice
- Speculate on, and develop, effective methods of communicating ethics
- Identify and map outcomes and consequences of unethical and ethical practice
- Speculate and apply new criteria within the supply-chain
- Analyse the motivations and roles of consumers in the ethics discourse and practice
- Identify best practice models across the traditional fashion and textiles industries, social enterprise and non-governmental organisations (NGOs)
- Research independently the role of ethics in fashion practice and theory

Assessment

Students are assessed through a combination of individual and group written course work, and projects and the Masters dissertation. Emphasis is placed on rigorous academic standards as well as acquiring and developing a range of transferable industry skills and individual development. Assessment exercises can therefore include making effective visual and oral presentations, writing reports and as well as team and group work.

Introduction

With its three distinctive but interconnected pathways, this course is for dynamic students looking to thrive within the fashion communications industry at the highest level. The Fashion Journalism pathway focuses on writing, editing and digital media. Fashion Communication & Promotion is for innovative image-makers; and Fashion Critical Studies offers an academic approach to the analysis of Fashion.

Content

The MAFC course consists of three specific pathways. While each pathway has a distinct approach to Fashion Communication, cross pathway projects will connect subject specialists into vibrant groups creating challenging and industry relevant experiences.

There are key points in the year when MAFC students will interact with MA Fashion Design students and experience Fashion Communication in a live context. In January and February the build up to the MA Fashion Show at London Fashion Week will provide opportunities to participate in the production and organisation of a fashion show. In May MAFC students can work with BA Fashion students as they present their degree fashion show.

The MAFC course is framed in the highly creative Fashion Programme at Central Saint Martins, but also within an Art School philosophy where other creative disciplines such as Graphic Communication, Architecture, Textiles, Jewellery, Product Design and Fine Art offer debates, collaborations and new approaches to the subject.

The extensive global CSM networks offer contemporary fashion links, creative networks and live industry projects. Expertise from the UAL research staff, high-profile academics and industry professionals ensure a global and industry relevant perspective. The vibrant post-graduate community across UAL also offers exciting opportunities for subject discussion and collaboration.
