Program description

Fashion Design with Foundation Year

The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.

Get your designs on the catwalk with BA (Hons) Fashion Design. With our unique focus on sustainability we equip you with a broad knowledge of fashion from design, pattern cutting and construction to insights into fashion’s impact on people and the environment. If you want to make your mark on the fashion industry, you can start with this course.

Understand fashion

You’ll explore the many twists and turns of fashion, as well as how to research and develop ideas to produce exciting and innovative fashion. The course cultivates new ways of making and thinking about fashion with a focus on promoting sustainability.

Beyond design and construction, you will also learn how to present your ideas to clients and pitch design concepts to a wider audience. On this course, you’ll develop your individual strengths, building a small collection and portfolio to launch you into the design industry on graduation.

Get involved with the industry

You will benefit from our links with the fashion industry and close proximity to London. London is one of the world’s fashion capitals, well known for spawning innovation and talent. As well as working on your own briefs, you’ll have the chance to work on industry-based projects with cutting edge designers. You will develop live exhibitions and fashion shows to showcase your work and network with industry professionals. We also have an extensive list of guest speakers who are working to develop an ethical approach to designing for the future.
