About

The course focuses on evolution and radical change in design. You will explore how design is influenced by cultural, social, critical and historical studies. You will develop your own signature style, experimenting across sketch work, 2D to 3D, knitwear and digital print in Kingston School of Art's workshops and dedicated fashion design studios. You will also have access to our working dress archive which includes pieces from 1750 to the present day, including the recently acquired Sibling knitwear archive. Our curator also works closely with Bath Fashion Museum.

Our strong industry links mean you will learn to apply creativity for the real-world and will be industry ready on graduation. Kingston students participate in international fashion competitions by top brands such as Burberry, Mulberry and Coach.
