3 Year Full-Time Programme Outline:
Degree in Fashion Design
The Degree programme is planned to stimulate critical thinking and professional methodology, with contextual studies covering topics of cultural, historical and contemporary practice and theory in fashion design. Although the programme promotes theoretical key skills, sound technical ability is at the core of all module outcomes. We expect that students will be exposed to job opportunities in the fashion design practice, textiles, editing / journalism, styling, fashion design retail and the apparel industry.
Diploma in Fashion Design
On the Diploma course we teach modules that cover the entire value chain of fashion from conceptualising an idea to designing and making of the garments. In support of this process we also teach business, research, history, CAD, illustration, photography, design management, professional development, textiles (both technical qualities and surface design techniques) and pattern drafting.
