BA (Hons) Fashion Design work

Students on our BA (Hons) Fashion Design course explore techniques including traditional and creative pattern cutting and draping, surface textiles with knitwear, styling, and digital media, creating a final collection to present at our annual degree show.

These skills not only prepare them for a career as a fashion designer, but for roles such as styling, buying, pattern cutting, illustrating, and trend forecasting.

See work by graduating students 2020-2023 on our PastPresent showcase.

In 2021, our 2nd year students worked on a live project with the Portuguese denim brand Heavy Jeans. The primary focus of the project was to design a collection of sustainable products for their spring/summer 2022 campaign. Heavy Jeans has kindly dedicated space on their website to promote the project.
