This course is characterised by a strong focus on couture and the development of your own style through innovative and conceptual design. You will be encouraged to experiment with processes and materials as you question and extend the boundaries of your design practice, supported by theory informed approaches and contextual understanding. You will be encouraged to develop independent research projects while developing a high level of proficiency with traditional and couture techniques. Joining a community of designers, researchers, and visiting industry guests, you will be part of a stimulating and dynamic environment. Your tutors are expert practitioners with strong links to industry practice. Studio technicians will further support your exploration of bespoke tailoring, experimental cutting and draping methods, the traditions and craft of haute couture, hand and machine finishing techniques and the use of contemporary technologies. Facilities include three fully equipped open plan studios providing a creative and supportive environment in which to refine and professionalise your practice. With a focus on preparing you both intellectually and professionally for employment, the course will encourage you to consider the professional contexts for your work.
