About

The BA Fashion Design Technology: Womenswear (Hons) course at University of the Arts London (UAL) will develop the core skills of researching, designing, pattern cutting and realisation of womenswear, including problem solving, to achieve the finished product.

As well as learning these skills you will gain an intellectual appreciation of fashion and its place in society through studying relevant academic units, and acquire the visual and verbal skills necessary to be a successful designer. The course considers market levels, from high street to designer, through a range of projects, many of which are in conjunction with specific labels or companies, or are for a particular sector of the market. The course takes advantage of its global positioning in one of the fashion capitals of the world, and you will have the opportunity to interact with the city’s thriving fashion, art, music and club cultures.

The short work placement will enable you to experience the reality of working within a particular company, together with the chance to make useful contacts for your future career. This wider involvement with industry and society is invaluable to your development as a designer, as is the opportunity to enter national and international design competitions and to take part in collaborations across the College on specific external projects.

Careers 

Many graduates prefer to seek employment as soon as they have completed their undergraduate studies. Recent Womenswear graduates from this course are working in many companies across the industry including Max Mara, Celine, Hillier Bartley,Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, Tesco, Arcadia, Debenhams, Jaeger, All Saints and Burberry. 

Other graduates have gone on to set up and operate their own labels, showing their collections independently, being selected for Fashion East, or producing guest collections for H&M.
