Fashion (Menswear)

MA Fashion Menswear aims to develop visionary design thinking. It has a focus on the cultural nuances and perspectives associated with the design, fabrication and dissemination specifically associated with the development of innovative and culturally relevant menswear. You will be based in an interdisciplinary studio environment with opportunities for collaboration with external industry partners and to link with graphics, branding, textiles for fashion and knitwear. An optional element provides broader research perspectives, through media, digital design and by examining the urban conditions that underpin fashion's cultural position. You will be encouraged to produce and disseminate design solutions, that challenge traditional fashion outputs through material and virtual responses. You will also benefit from extensive industry links and networks associated with the well-established undergraduate fashion programme.

Entry requirements

You will normally have an undergraduate UK Honours degree or international equivalent or a degree-equivalent postgraduate diploma or a professional qualification.
