Who should take this course
MA Fashion has an international profile second to none. It has extensive industry links, and graduates practise professionally at the forefront of international fashion.
MA Fashion is fast paced to replicate working practices in the industry.
This postgraduate course is about leading not following. It is about possibilities, goals and ideals, wider imagination, versatility, rigour and motivation.
The course is offered in four pathways that are interrelated and structured around the core subject of fashion and are taught by our excellent team of technical staff and practising designers. With an ethos of guided experimentation, you will explore your individual style while being challenged to innovate to the highest standards.
With an emphasis on research, and fashion awareness the course aims to produce professional and original designers ready to pursue careers, which will shape the future of the fashion industry. MA Fashion believes that truly relevant, innovative design is not purely a creative activity involving designers in the artistic process & it also recognises the ability to analyse markets and respond to the changes within industry and society.
MA Fashion emphasises presentation and communication skills:
You will not only create relevant and innovative work but also be good communicators capable of convincing colleagues that your ideas are based on a mature understanding of market context. You will get involved in the debates generated by our Professional Speakers Talks, in project-base learning, and critiques that help you develop your analytical and communication skills. These activities, together with the staff team's wide-ranging professional practice, bring excitement and breadth to the course.
About the course:
MA Fashion lasts 45 weeks full-time. It is structured in three units over five terms of varying lengths commencing in late October. MA Fashion sits outside the usual postgraduate framework as it shows on the official London Fashion Week schedule & the only course to do so.
A feature of MA Fashion is the interrelated nature of the four pathways offered. You will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with other disciplines just as you need to in the professional world. MA Fashion benefits from the special atmosphere created by students from varied specialisms, backgrounds and nationalities & all of them committed to fashion & working together in close proximity.
