Course Description

On this course you'll learn how to create fashion concepts, taking your designs from an initial idea and sketch to a developed garment.

During this course you will:

  • develop your personal approach to fashion concept development
  • research themes and trends and apply them to your work
  • explore fashion ideas in 2D and 3D
  • learn how to create contemporary fashion illustrations
  • experiment with draping fabric on a mannequin to create contemporary fashion forms
  • produce a garment using unconventional, second hand materials.

What will you gain?

By the end of the course you'll have a portfolio of new drawings and designs, plus examples of working in 3D.

You'll have real hands-on experience of what it's like to be a fashion student at university, and an understanding of what admissions tutors are looking for. It's ideal if you're looking to progress into fashion design, accessory design or costume.
