Course summary

Fashion Design with Digital Technology requires a creative eye, a talent for design, plus the practical skills and technical ability to master this exciting course. On this course, we’ll: * Give you the chance to design and make fashion garments, whilst also getting a feel for production methods such as computerised pattern cutting, grading and mass production. * Get technical with your creative skills. You’re going to need the technical know-how so, as well as exploring creative design, fashion illustration, and range building, we’ll focus on garment technology, using our specialist software. From industry-standard garment production machinery and pattern-cutting equipment, to state-of-the-art software for computer-aided design and manufacture, you’ll be able to choose the equipment you need to develop your own individual style, fully supported in your work by a team of skilled technical staff. * Offer the opportunity for you to get a real feel for the fashion industry by taking an optional placement year during the course. You'll get hands-on experience with a high street name or in a small design house, working in the UK or overseas. Fashion Design with Digital Technology is one of our newer courses. We’ll focus on fashion design but this course adds the specialty of digital technology for fashion, making this course stand out from its sister routes - Fashion Design with Marketing and Fashion Design with Textiles. All students on this suite of courses study fashion design together, then split off for a time every week to specialise in the given aspect they choose. The four years I have spent studying Fashion have been a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It has been difficult and pushed me to my limit many times, but the rewarding feeling at the end of each academic year was amazing and graduating after four years of studying makes all the difficult times worth it in the end. I'm really thankful for everything I've studied and amazing friends I've met along the way. ~ Sophie Leek, Fashion Design with Textiles BA(Hons) 2019 graduate. Additional Costs:Basic materials will be provided during the first and second years of the course, including pattern paper, thread and calico fabric. You’ll need to supply some of your own materials, including sewing equipment, art materials and printing. The costs may vary based on the materials you choose. During your first and second years we endeavour to gain fabric sponsorship for all first and second year projects. If no fabric sponsorship can be gained the maximum cost will be approximately £100 per student in Year 1 and £200 per student in Year 2. In the final year you’ll need to supply the materials you require to produce your major collection. There is no limit on the amount you may wish to spend, however as a guide, costs in recent years have ranged from £200 to £1500 per student for this project.
