Through this course we propose an alternative future for fashion. One that rejects boundaries of gender, ‘typical’ fashion culture and wasteful and exploitative fashion systems. With a curriculum designed to question the current inherited practice and value systems in fashion education and the industry at large our BA (Hons) Fashion Design seeks to create fashion innovators who eschew a standard approach and instead create and design new processes to address the challenges of waste, inclusions, and environment faced within the industry.
This vision drives all that we do, from reviving heritage skills to better fit the realities of our unstable future to supporting unconventional methods at every point of the process. Our approach is tactile, three dimensional, inclusive and empathetic. It is agile, responsive and encourages uncompromising quality.
We explore how design may be democratised to harness the power of innovation through collaboration and a greater respect and deeper understanding of the context with which we create our design within. Working across multiple fashion disciplines, you will develop a foundation for your practice to be refined throughout your studies and as you progress into industry.
We invite our students to radically re-design design itself. Radical creativity, imagination and innovation are at the heart of all our practice in keeping with our guiding principles of design: Social Inclusivity, Innovative Design, Inventive Method, and Ethically Produced.
