• Contour Fashion – specialising in the study of intimate apparel, including jersey wear, lingerie, swimwear, corsetry, loungewear and bra design
• Fashion Design – with the opportunity to specialise in womenswear, menswear and fashion knitwear
• Footwear Design and Accessories – with options including women’s, men’s and children’s footwear and accessories for sport, leisure or fashion
• Textile Design – for fashion, interiors and lifestyle, with the opportunity to specialise in print, construct and mixed media
Prior to enrolling onto the course you will choose one of the pathways which will provide the focus of your design practice. The promotion of creative, technical and intellectual knowledge, alongside a critical, contextual understanding will be a key focus. This is complemented by teaching and learning across the pathways to consider design communication, portfolio development and promotion.
The course will prepare you for a variety of careers. Graduates from the School have gone on to work in roles ranging from design, product development, buying, and garment technology to working freelance or starting up a small business. They have also gone on to work for national and multinational companies such as Agent Provocateur, Courtaulds, Abercrombie and Fitch, Tommy Hilfiger, Superdry, Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, French Connection, Jigsaw, Next, H&M, Kurt Geiger, L.K.
