Course content

Course details:

Based mainly in central London, at John Prince's Street, and resourced by specialist equipment at our other sites, contemporary technology is at the core of this course. CAD CAM, state of the art knitting machines and facilities for digital print, rapid proto-typing and laser cutting allow students to produce womenswear collections that innovate in the field. By nurturing creativity and specialist research, the course enables individuals to produce high quality and innovative work through illustration, design, cutting and modern manufacturing.

Students are supported to develop collaborations with industry specialists and international fabric suppliers, a process that not only builds important contacts for the future but one that enriches student experience and refines design sensibility. Using diverse production techniques - from couture craftsmanship to futuristic experimentation - students are able to explore their own perspectives to form the basis of their MA collection. Guided by experienced staff, this also has the potential to incorporate a further specialism such as embroidery, knitwear or digital concepts.
