Explore the world of fashion in the largest knit, weave and print studios you’ll ever see in an academic setting. You’ll have access to fully equipped clothing workshops, spacious studios with individual workspaces, technical workshops, laboratories, state-of-the-art production equipment and first-class Computer Aided Design (CAD) suites. Everything you could possibly need to develop your skills and explore your love of fashion.
This course covers a range of market sectors ranging from high-street fashion to ready-to-wear across both UK and global perspectives. Facing internal and external projects will help you develop your own fashion writing style and shape your understanding of the worldwide fashion industry. These skills can ultimately open the door to incredible career opportunities in your chosen marketplace.
We’re also keenly aware of fashion’s responsibility to work towards a sustainable, ethical and diverse future. Our briefs and projects respond to this, presenting a true reflection of many of the challenges being faced in the industry today. A good example of our commitment to this is our support for textile heritage. We work with many local and national industries to help ensure that traditional craftsmanship will always have a place alongside contemporary design.
The course is taught in our Scottish Borders Campus, which sits close to the heart of Scotland’s luxury textile industry. This is your chance to study in an area that’s home to some of the UK’s top design and production facilities for textiles and fashion.
