Course summary

This dynamic new course embraces culture, commerce and creativity and has been designed to answer the fashion industry’s demands around innovation and sustainability.

Working in our extensive workshops and studios, you will experiment with materials and techniques, designing and making cutting-edge accessories, products and adornments. We will encourage you to express new ideas about sub-culture and identity, gender and politics, society and environmental concerns that will challenge precedent and drive change.
