Do you enjoy drawing and designing garments and accessories, as well as the challenge of bringing your ideas to life through making? The Textiles Fashion course will encourage you to develop a creative and experimental approach to contemporary fashion design and garment making. You will learn how to develop innovative solutions to a fashion design brief through in-depth research, experimentation and sample making. Your personal creativity and interests will be reflected through the opportunity to design garments for the worlds of couture fashion, costume and accessory design.
Working in sketchbooks, you will evidence your evolving skills and knowledge, fashion terms and ideas, documenting and constantly reflecting on your creative development. By the end of the first year you will have produced a body of coursework, which explores your design ideas, problem-solving through to a final fashion product.
The second year builds on your learning in the first year. There is one personally negotiated, focused coursework project and one exam project. In addition to designing and making there is a written element of the course where individual learning will be supported by group presentations and contextual lectures.
