Your degree will begin with introductory and shared impact lab units where, working with students from other disciplines, you’ll focus on problems and social issues and identify potential solutions connected to industry and community.
Your introductory studies will focus on the theory and practice of fashion design, including hands-on studies of design fabrication that form the foundation for your technical skills and associated knowledge to realise your own design ideas. You will then build on this foundation through studies covering global fashion cultures, ethical and sustainable practices, as well as collaborative and communication skills.
In the later stages of your degree you will synthesise your understanding of product development and retail readiness including developing a major final-year project.Double degrees
Fashion is an internationally recognised business powerhouse. Study fashion with a double degree in business to enhanse your opportunities to work in diverse design careers internationally including fashion buying, fashion marketer, fashion finance, fashion business analyst, design forecaster and fashion entrepreneur.
