Fashion Shaping

Students will enjoy a postgraduate learning environment which stimulates debate and the exchange of ideas through a multi-disciplinary approach to fashion. Postgraduate fashion shaping encourages a broad based, experimental and curatorial approach to fashion design, reflecting an individual's particular interest. Taught by our well-qualified and experienced team, you are encouraged to extend their projects beyond the accepted norms of conventional fashion design, and will be expected to develop their proposals, possibly in a collaborative way utilising both UCLan and outside resources. The course operates alongside the large full time undergraduate degrees in fashion and fashion promotion and will be able to call upon facilities from other newly established fashion related MA programmes.

Entry requirements

Honours degree in a relevant creative subject, which may include fine art, sculpture, curating or equivalent professional/industrial experience with evidence of academic achievement; applications must be accompanied by a research project proposal outlining their intended area of interest and proposed investigation.

Course modules

Teaching involves a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, presentations and industry liaison, and assessment is continuous. Theory underpinning practice is developed simultaneously throughout each semester and negotiated agreements parts I and II allow students to acquire the ability to develop and refine proposals, which underpin their major projects, and reflect on personal progress. Research methods and application introduces students to a range of analytical research tools, forming the basis for all in-depth self-directed projects on the programme.

Assessment methods

The course is continually assessed through module requirements, allowing students to achieve target awards. Final modules are graded pass, merit, and distinction.
