This Fashion Branding and Creative Communication (Hons) at Cambridge School of Visual & Performing Arts is designed to develop the skills, innovation and creative vision necessary for the fast-moving world of fashion branding and communications.  Over the three years you will develop into a versatile, creative individual, with a strong sense of personal design direction and signature, ready to operate within both the commercial and conceptual realms of fashion.  You will emerge with a clear, concise portfolio and a dynamic body of work which demonstrates your awareness of fashion and the socio-cultural environment you will be entering.

What to Expect

Based in Cambridge, an internationally recognised centre of learning excellence, this course creates a professional and stimulating environment for you to develop and explore your own creativity through a supportive and progressive platform.

Maintaining an ‘atelier’ approach, high contact hours and extensive studio time, you will have all the tools to grow as a designer amongst your peers within a bespoke, contemporary fashion context.

We aim to equip you with the skill set to work in industry by instilling and evolving a broad range of technical and creative transferable skills that enable you to under take a wide range of roles from creative communications, PR, branding and event management to art direction, styling and image creation.

Our course tutors possess a strong range of industry experiences and knowledge, spanning from couture to sportswear, allowing you to access a wealth of information and perspectives on the infrastructure of contemporary fashion. Assisting you to leave the course with a fully rounded approach to the industry from both a practical and personal view point is key; fostering initiative, ambition, professionalism and confidence will enable you to lead in both commercial and creative environments.

Our tuition is focused on studio-based modules which encourage personal responses and the development of your individual identity in your work. Core skills such as research, concept development, design, digital and brand awareness develop from encouraging you to generate your own solutions to briefs.
