Fashion Innovation and Realisation

This programme has been designed to allow you as a student, or a professional in fashion and related industries, such as marketing, journalism, photography, film, pattern cutting to advance your current skills and expertise and engage in an advanced level of fashion-related academic study. This flexible, modular programme will allow you to develop your skills, experience and expertise through experimental, innovative practice and fashion theory. The programme then switches to career-focused �realisation� modules, achieved through collaborative and interdisciplinary practice and a guided study of relevant business and entrepreneurial opportunities. Both pathways will culminate in the development and presentation of a final major project where you will present the outcomes of their individual learning plan.
