Highlights

The postgraduate programme Fashion Design Womenswear has consistently equipped participants with the creative skills and professionalism demanded by the global fashion system, with outstanding links to industry and a high number of alumni successfully placed in major fashion and luxury brands or running their own fashion labels. This dynamic 15-month course (including placement) cultivates the design creativity, individual style and personal vision of participants while they respond to the rapidly evolving landscape of fashion through a series of project-based activities that reflect different aspects of industry practice.

In this way, participants are challenged to develop their thinking about fashion – what it is and what it can become – to realise their full potential, while gaining advanced fashion design skills together with industry preparation. Participants graduate with an understanding of their unique identity as designers and of their position in the fashion industry based on market intelligence.

At postgraduate level, participants will already have experience in fashion design, pattern cutting, garment making and portfolio creation in order to successfully meet the challenges of this course. Content includes creative and conceptual research, design development and experimentation, professional project development, and collection development. They are encouraged to work experimentally with the shape and construction of garments, with the use of renewable and sustainable resources and to devise imaginative ways of working with materials and techniques – the true, creative artisan of fashion combined with the excellence that is “Italianness”; internationally acclaimed craftsmanship, design and style.

The strong design and practical elements of the course run alongside contextual, theoretical, conceptual and forward-looking perspectives. Participants have the opportunity to focus on a personal area of enquiry through research and conceptual development, leading to a dissertation project accompanied by individually proposed practical work such as a fashion artefact or capsule collection. Current issues in the fashion industry are also addressed in in subjects such as neo craftsmanship, hi- technology and alternative business models, together with professional links with fashion companies; industry projects and guest speakers all assist to provide a detailed insight into the realities, and the opportunities, of fashion design.
