Program description

Fashion Buying with Product Development BA (Hons)

The fashion industry is constantly evolving and there is a growing need for buyers with a rounded knowledge of product realisation, as well as technical design and development expertise. This course can equip you with the skills needed to continuously innovate and adapt to changes within this fast-moving sector.

You’ll learn about the life cycle of a product from concept stage and market analysis, through to delivery to the shop floor. Develop your design aesthetic through practical skills, exploring pattern cutting, construction, fabric awareness, and creating your own commercial design work. Choose to enhance this and develop your technical ability with a focus on making 3D garments, or 3D computer-aided-design (CAD). You will have access to a suite of the latest software packages to progress your design skills and learn new applications.

Make the most of opportunities to connect with our strong industry network to gain support in idea generation for new product developments. We’ll also offer you the opportunity to work on live projects with industry insiders and to hear from expert visiting lecturers.
