Fashion Design

The MA Fashion Design programme gives you the freedom to pursue your creative ambitions through experimental practice, personal research and critical evaluation. Working in purpose-built studios, you'll cover core topics such as sketchbook development, visual research, sustainability and design, construction techniques and materials, CAD (computer-aided design) and fashion portfolio skills. We focus on a combination of hand making skills and techniques alongside the use of cutting-edge technologies; our superb facilities include bespoke pattern-cutting tables and industry-standard machines, traditional print and textile facilities as well as the latest technical and 3D printing technology. You'll learn from tutors with years of professional fashion design experience and strong industry connections. They will work closely with you to help you develop your individual strengths and to enhance your employability. You'll benefit from professional skills workshops, exposure to industry through live briefs and guest lectures, and the opportunity to showcase your work in Winchester and London. The teaching team's extensive contacts can also facilitate internship opportunities with leading fashion companies.
