Course Information

Fashion Design with Digital Technology is one of our new suite of courses. This course focuses on fashion design but adds the speciality of digital technology making this course stand out from its sister routes - Fashion Design with Marketing and Fashion Design with Textiles. All students on this suite of courses study fashion design together, then split off for a time every week to specialise in the given aspect they choose.

Do you have the drive and ambition to see your own fashion collection in the window of a big-name retailer on the high street? Then you’ll need a creative eye, a talent for design, plus the practical skills and technical ability to help make it happen.

On this course we’ll -

  • Give you the chance to design and make fashion garments, whilst also getting a feel for production methods such as computerised pattern cutting, grading and mass production. This means you’ll be able to translate your designs on paper into physical garments in a range of sizes and understand the processes and technologies involved in producing them on a large scale.
  • Get technical with your creative skills. You’re going to need the technical know-how so as well as exploring creative design, fashion illustration and range building, we’ll look at technical processes in garment manufacture too.
  • Show you how to use a range of contemporary technology. From industry-standard garment production machinery and pattern-cutting equipment to state-of-the-art software for computer-aided design and manufacture, you’ll be able to choose the equipment you need to bring your ideas to life.

You’ll have the chance to get experience in the real world through placement opportunities if you want to. You could, with our help, secure yourself a role such as production intern, design assistant, product development intern or studio intern, like some of our recent students. It’s all designed to help you build up a portfolio of skills and get you ready for employment in the fast-paced fashion industry once you’ve graduated.

We also have many guest lecturers. Some previous presenters have been Alan Cannon Jones – Saville Row Tailor, Davinder Madaher – Print Designer – Workshops, and Sadie Clayton – Fashion Designer.
