Course In-Depth

The course begins with an introduction to the discipline, giving you the tools to operate in your specialist design field. Throughout the course of study, each component gives experience in different aspects of design practice and theory, with an emphasis on ethical and sustainable materials and technologies, and the fusion of contemporary and naturally sustainable traditional skills enabling you to build confidence in exploring your subject.

 

We see this combination of curious enquiry and professional rigour as key to nurturing the designer as a ‘critical professional’, grounded in the specialist field of Fashion Design, but one who understands the need and is equipped to work towards an ethical and sustainable industry. Practical skills are taught throughout the course in workshops and tutorials using traditional and state of the art equipments.

Course Assesment

The assessment strategy for our design courses uses a perfect balance between summative and formative assessments in order to improve skills not only on core disciplines but also in project planning and time management. Projects are concurrently conducted between all modules in order to improve students’ transferrable skills, allowing them to link skills and competencies from various domains.

Industry Link

An Integral part of the course is the links to profession practitioners and industries, and in particular to this unique course is the connections you will make with ethical and sustainable sectors of the design and textile industry. You will learn how traditional sustainable practices such as ‘ikkat’ textiles, hand loomed weaving, shibori, along with contemporary ethical and sustainable practices such as; ‘peace silk’ and herbal dying can be incorporated into modern contemporary design practices.

 

Also how organisations such as ‘blue sign’ technologies and ‘Beyond Surface Technologies’ (BST)are working with massive fashion, sports, footwear and apparel companies to create more sustainable products for the mass consumer market.

 

Students will learn how these important traditional skills and techniques fused with new technologies can provide a design pathway to a sustainable and ethical future.
