The BA Fashion Textiles: Knit (Hons) course at the University of the Arts London (UAL) will develop your skills in research, drawing, design development and presentation, fashion textile development and manufacture, 3D awareness, fashion textile forecasting and trend development, market analysis, and awareness of forward thinking textile and fashion concerns such as sustainability and ethical issues.
Through learning skills, applying technology and developing your individual creativity, you will become an innovative and original textile designer, able to design for international markets ranging from high street to couture.
The course is fashion focused with opportunities to experiment, apply and inspire technical, creative collaborations across courses including pattern cutter, menswear and womenswear students in the 3D realisation of your textile designs. This collaborative practice is established through appropriate sponsored projects and cross course partnerships in the first and second years of the course and may lead to collaborations where final year textile students and final year fashion students work together to produce a complete textile and fashion product range.
Graduates leave with a broad skillset, enabling them to enter a wide spectrum of creative industries. Alumni have continued onto careers with companies including Burberry, Erdem, Adidas, Victoria Beckham, Ralph & Russo, Alexander McQueen, Topshop and Mary Katranzou.
Graduates have won scholarships from prestigious institutions such as British Fashion Council and Texprint (Texselect) and alumni have also continued onto setting up independent businesses based on the success of their creative practice.
