On this course you'll have the chance to focus on designing and making fashion garments, and develop an in-depth understanding of production (computerised pattern cutting and mass production) and marketing (brand creation and promotion). This course aims to create innovative and creative fashion designers with the practical and technical ability to achieve success. You'll have the opportunity to gain a comprehensive portfolio of skills, representing your abilities in creative design, evocative illustration, range building, garment manufacture and promotion. This course is currently one of a small number of fashion design degrees in the UK that is accredited by Creative Skillset. This marks excellence in the course and recognises that you will have the opportunity to develop in line with the needs of the industry, helping to enhance your employability. Visit creativeskillset.org for further information. Our fashion studios within the iconic Creative Arts Building house a range of technology to help you to bring your ideas to life, including industry standard sewing machines and pattern cutting equipment. You'll also have access to up-to-date industry-standard software for computer aided design and manufacture. This course is part of a suite of two courses which are Fashion Design (Fashion Design with Marketing and Production) BA(Hons) and Fashion Design (Fashion Design with Textiles) BA(Hons). Once you have enrolled on one of these courses, you can transfer onto the other course within the suite should you wish.
