Create fashion designs and explore experimental approaches to garment making and design. We will show you how to challenge the limitations of fashion and understand its role in society.

As part of your course you’ll:

  • Learn to create designs in response to different trends, market forces and technical innovations 
  • Work on arts and industry-informed briefs and live projects to create a portfolio of professional design and making skills
  • Develop a strong understanding of the cultural, ethical and environmental concerns in the contemporary fashion industry
  • Concentrate on 2D and 3D skills, and understand how to communicate ideas to manufacturers both here and abroad
  • Explore 2D work using computer-aided design (CAD) for a professional finish
  • Explore fabric and form to ensure applicable 3D outcomes are achieved
  • Study key areas including research of ideas, design and the articulation of ideas

We’ll give you a designated studio space in our award-winning Broadcasting Place building - home to many of our creative courses - and you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with other innovative thinkers in subjects like fine art, graphic design and architecture.

Fashion is one of the world's biggest industries and we passionately believe it’s about more than just the commercially driven production and promotion of new collections. It’s a reflection of society, identity and culture, and is also a powerful protagonist for change. You’ll learn to challenge the limitations of fashion as the manifestation of temporary consumer trends.

We are committed to providing a course that responds to your own personality, interests and creativity. You’ll study a range of briefs to develop a portfolio of professional skills that will open doors to a range of careers in fashion.

You’ll also have the opportunity to impress the public and industry by exhibiting your work at the end of your final year. See examples of Fashion Marketing students' work in the Leeds School of Arts Festival.
