Fashion and Textiles

Fashion and Textile design is both an academic and practical subject which enables students to explore and express their individuality through the fashion and textile medium. It emphasises the creative use of textiles and the development and communication of ideas through the design process.

Our Fashion and Textile course is designed to give students the opportunity to express their individuality in a creative and functional manner. Students develop their understanding, confidence and proficiency using the design process through designing, producing, and evaluating fashion and textile items. They apply a variety of analytical and creative techniques to solve problems. They develop an understanding and appreciation of society and the environment through studying fashion in both contemporary and historical settings, and the impact of technology, including social and environmental consequences.
