**Fashion is an evolutionary and multi-faceted industry that takes innovations in technology and culture as inspiration. From creative online campaigns that provoke questions about society, through to discussions around retail and how in-store experiences and online shopping are changing the profession, multitudes of processes occur within fashion.**

- Tap into current trends and market insights, with access to global forecasting tools such as WGSN and The Future Laboratory.

- Gain experience in professional photo and film shoots using our industry-standard equipment and studios.

- Visit key fashion events including London and Paris Fashion Week.

Explore a wide range of techniques in art direction, styling, photography, film, graphics, retail design, fashion writing, social media and advertising.

This degree enables you to develop strong conceptual, visual and written communication skills. Strictly for the fashion-curious, it is practice-based and multidisciplinary, designed to help talented and self-motivated students become innovators and strategists.
