Course content

This innovative and progressive course will give you the opportunity to develop your creative, technical, and critical skills in fashion and textile design, while extending your practice in a conceptual and professional context.

The course combines intensive, studio-based projects with design research, as well as furthering your understanding and working knowledge of the techniques and processes specific to your chosen field of fashion and textile design. You’ll also learn to consider your design practice in terms of the technological, social, critical and ecological issues that influence fashion and textile design, while extending your understanding of business and entrepreneurship through industry briefs and external projects.

You’ll have the opportunity to develop advanced research skills and explore issues related to design practice, including new technology, globalisation and sustainability. This will be informed by your work with academics, practitioners and experts in the field of fashion design and textile design.

We use a broad range of teaching and learning strategies, including lectures, seminars and studio practice. You’ll take part in presentations, group activities, study groups and individual tutorials to discuss, debate and critique your work alongside your peers. You’ll work in our specialist workshops that include digital print and CAD facilities, knit, weave and print equipment, fashion sewing and pattern-making resources and an extensive specialist art and design library.

Our teaching staff are active in professional practice, research and scholarship and are members of research groups covering digital and material arts and sustainable art and design.

When you have completed your course you’ll be able to position yourself for a career in design for fashion, textiles, or related product areas, such as knitwear, performance sportswear or smart textiles for apparel and other uses such as interior design. Alternatively, you could further your studies through one of our MPhil or PhD programmes.
