Guided by experienced staff and resourced with state of the art equipment, this course nurtures talent and develops directional womenswear designers whose cutting-edge fashion influences the future of the industry.
MA Fashion Design Technology Womenswear seeks to recruit ambitious, creative designers who have a long-term fashion focus and wish to work for a key brand or set up their own label. Based primarily in London’s West End at John Prince’s Street and resourced by the specialist equipment at our other central sites, contemporary technology is at the core of this course.
CAD CAM, state of the art knitting machines and facilities for digital print, rapid proto-typing and laser cutting allow students to produce womenswear collections that innovate in the field.
By nurturing creativity and specialist research, the course enables individuals to produce high quality and innovative work through illustration, design, cutting and modern manufacturing.
Students are supported to develop collaborations with industry specialists and international fabric suppliers, a process that not only builds important contacts for the future but one that enriches student experience and refines design sensibility. Using diverse production techniques - from couture craftsmanship to futuristic experimentation - students are able to explore their own perspectives to form the basis of their MA collection. Guided by experienced staff, this also has the potential to incorporate a further specialism such as embroidery, knitwear or digital concepts.
