Course summary

**Also available for January 2021 start.****How it works**We are excited to offer a selection of BA (Hons) creative courses through our distance learning provision. Our vision for excellence in art and design distance learning, under the banner of our Connected Campus, affords students flexibility in their studies whilst being a valued part of our community.These three-year courses all share a common distance-learning first year, while specialising in a chosen subject, then progressing into named awards in year two and three. The first year of your January Entry BA (Hons) Fashion course can be studied at home, in your own studio space, or at our dedicated international host institution. You will begin in January 2022, and your studies will finish in August 2022, allowing you to immediately progress on to your second year of study in September 2022.**What will I study?**Our BA (Hons) Fashion degree provides a comprehensive design education for independently-minded fashion thinkers and makers who are looking to influence change within the industry. From future forecasting, concept and design development, creative pattern cutting through to leading compelling marketing campaigns, Fashion is one of the largest employers in the UK’s creative industries - offering endless opportunities to those forward-thinking individuals who seek to challenge the assumptions of design, take creative risks and communicate their individual style through their work.You will have the freedom to hone your signature aesthetic without the confines of a house style. The course covers all aspects of the design process, from trend analysis, research and design development, drawing and illustration, colour and fabric development, historical and cultural studies, translation of ideas from 2D to 3D through to presentation, marketing and business development. You will use global trend forecasting tools WGSN and The Future Laboratory and learn software such as Adobe Creative Suite and Gerber Accumark for CAD pattern-cutting.You’ll learn to cut and manufacture quality one-off garments and collections with high levels of craftsmanship, and we’ll provide the tools for you to realise your ideas, and develop design specialisms in menswear, womenswear, lingerie, knitwear, performance, sportswear, and other technical routes.**How will I learn?**With online support from our expert teaching staff and technicians, you’ll investigate sustainable design and ethical manufacturing, acquiring a deep appreciation for every step of the commercial supply chain. You will become industry ready and develop entrepreneurial activity through collaborative projects with the Makers HQ, a visionary Plymouth College of Art initiative and community interest company, created to provide cut, make and trim services to the fashion industry, with a strong focus on achieving ethical and local British manufacture.Through visual exploration, collaborative working, cross-fertilisation of ideas, and the exploration of histories and contemporary contexts you’ll examine fashion attitudes in popular culture and music, and gain insight into fashion movements and how they have impacted the world as we know it.Through expert industry speakers, live briefs and collaborations with brands like Finisterre and Hiut Denim you’ll develop market awareness, project management and communication skills, along with insight into factors that impact design, development and production. You will engage with industry events in London, Paris, New York and Berlin, as well as having the chance to showcase your work at Graduate Fashion Week. Through our extensive professional network our students have secured placements with Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Christopher Raeburn, Mary Katrantzou, Missoni, J.W. Anderson, Gareth
