Course summary

Course overview:

Situated within the internationally recognised School of Fashion at UCA, our MA Printed Textiles for Fashion & Interiors offers a practice based, design-led experience, which develops your creative vision and redefines your professional practice.

From day one you’ll be part of our inspirational fashion community with it’s exciting creative postgraduate research culture.

You’ll be encouraged to push boundaries and challenge yourself both intellectually and creatively – and we'll provide you with the stimulating and supportive environment in which to do it. You’ll have the freedom to explore and combine traditional, handcrafted design and production techniques with the latest innovations in digital technology while researching ever-evolving materials and technologies.

Print design for fashion includes textiles collections for fashion, samples, experimental textile pieces, garment prototypes, design concepts or range plans, and fashion-related products or accessories.

Print design for textile art and interiors includes fashion-led interior concepts, one-off textiles, installation or site specific works, product prototypes, floor and wall coverings as well as exterior print applications.

This unique course offers you an exciting opportunity to make your creative vision a reality, master your skills, and develop new research methods - exploring innovative, relevant and sustainable solutions for fashion and textiles. Practice-based and theoretical research are integrated throughout the course, and this will help you to develop an individual design philosophy and research methodology, along with the visual, creative and practical skills to enter the industry at a higher level.

A vibrant creative studio culture with your own individual workspace is designed to support the development of your research and practice, along with a programme of tutorials, lecturers, seminars and critiques. As part of this course, you'll be involved in professional practice, such as a live industry project brief, competition work, industry sponsorship or industry engagement activities, all of which set the course apart from other Level 7 fashion programmes.

The course also offers a unique programme of industry guest lecturers including some of the UK’s foremost print for fashion designers and colour consultants whose clients include Dior, Vuitton Homme, Margiela, Topshop, Agi and Sam, Giles Deacon, and The Unseen. We also invite experts from research fields including sustainable fashion design and production, and mentoring from specialists involved in maker development. Students have unprecedented access to all these specialists, and enjoy one-to-one tutorials with them at regular intervals throughout the course.

Facilities:

Our excellent facilities include: textiles print room facility with a fully equipped dye lab, traditional screen printing tables, fabric processing and cloth dyeing; digital textiles resource area; digital textile printers; large and well-equipped pattern and production studios and workshops with industrial sewing machines, embroidery machines and specialist finishing machines.

Careers:

From day one on the course you start to build a professional portfolio, exploring ways to externalise your practice and create an online presence and ways to present your work to industry. This can evolve through first-hand experience, industry engagement activities and internships, or through working with fashion studios and agents, buyers, shops, galleries and interior designers as well as exhibition, national competitions and online selling platforms.
