Course summary

MA Fashion has an international profile second to none. With extensive industry links, its graduates’ practice at the forefront of fashion.

Why choose this course at Central Saint Martins

Engaged design: MA Fashion places emphasis on developing individual abilities and analytical skills within each specialist pathway. It promotes the idea that progressive design is not solely a creative endeavor. It must also engage with markets, the industry and society in general and therefore be the result of an informed point of view.

Critical debate: You will be involved in debates generated by academics, professional speakers, projects and inter-pathway critiques.

Pathway structure: MA Fashion allows you to study on one of four separate, but interrelated pathways: Womenswear, Menswear, Knitwear and Textiles for Fashion.

Communication skills: The course focuses on presentation and communication alongside design-led skills. You will learn not only how to create the right product for market, but how to promote and articulate your ideas.

MA Fashion develops your imagination and creative identity. The course will provide a framework for self-directed work, backed by informed knowledge of your industry. It will broaden and deepen your existing expertise, providing you with the experience, sophistication and confidence to practice professionally at the forefront of the international fashion industry. The course is delivered by a team of practicing designers and exceptional technical staff. With an ethos of guided experimentation, you will explore your individual style while being challenged to innovate to the highest standards.

The course provides the opportunity to study on one of four pathways: Womenswear, Menswear, Knitwear for Fashion and Textiles for Fashion. The inter-related pathways are all structured around the core subject of fashion. While much of your time and teaching will be concentrated within your selected pathway, there will be opportunities to work with your colleagues from other pathways. You will work collaboratively across disciplines, reflecting the needs of the professional world.

Across pathways, the programme is designed to provoke debate around attitudes and approaches to fashion. You will be expected to carry out intensive personal research throughout your studies. Teaching and research will help you develop your creative ideas, originality, aesthetic judgements and technical skills. Alongside the ability to create the right product for the market, you will learn presentation and communication skills.
