You learn the skills to promote fashion through film and media, marketing, branding, styling, computer-aided design, enterprise, and how to create your own magazine or fashion marketing campaign. Our technology and expertise enables you to showcase your creativity through new digital formats, including the use of avatars and virtual worlds to respond to innovative new ways of communicating fashion.

Graduates from the fashion design pathway can go on to work in areas including fashion design, drape, accessories, fashion print, specialist garment construction and lingerie.

Graduates from the fashion communication pathway can go on to work as fashion image-makers, fashion stylists, art directors, producers, film-makers, public relations experts, bloggers, social networkers, on-line marketers, fashion writers, curators, or fashion theorists.
