The fashion pathway will undertake practical projects in fashion design, styling and business and the design pathway will experience projects exploring interior design, visual design and product design. This will enable learners to build an extensive portfolio and decide their appropriate progression route.
Students will ultimately be guided to propose and implement a substantial creative project in a specialist area of their choice. This project will demonstrate their creative direction and defines their individual practice.
