Programa académico

The MA Fashion is an exciting new postgraduate programme with four specialist pathways, offering a multidisciplinary framework for advanced independent, creative and groundbreaking areas of study leading to an original body of work. Each of the four pathways includes elements of business knowledge relevant to the fashion industry:

Fashion Design This pathway focuses on the advanced study, development and resolution of original fashion design – through men's, women's or children's wear. Students will be supported in the exploration of couture, advanced tailoring and draping methods as well as innovative material and construction technology.

Fashion Communication and Promotion This pathway concentrates on the communication and promotion of fashion products through a variety of media such as illustration, photography, digital technologies, film and animation. Students will explore the rhetoric of still or moving image within the context of the fashion industry and use findings to create directional work.

Fashion Textiles This pathway approaches printed and constructed textiles as a platform for interdisciplinary experimentation in the context of fashion product. Students will be encouraged to push the boundaries of textile design by combining traditional and new technologies and draw inspiration from other disciplines such as materials science, biology, engineering and biotechnology.

Jewellery and Accessories This pathway offers a focus on the juxtaposition of body and artefact – realising innovative definitions of what jewellery or accessory is, and exploring the use of traditional and non traditional materials in resolution of ideas.

Taught by some of the UK's leading practitioners and specialists in Fashion, Art and Design, this course is divided into five modules taken over three semesters (if studied full time). Each module is designed to be flexible, allowing you to bring your own Fashion interests and pathway choice to the assignments while extending the boundaries of your current artistic practice through experimentation, research, analysis, and creative exploration.

Developing Practice – Term 1 (30 credits) Through a combination of studio, practice and text based methods you will explore a chosen area of your Fashion in a contemporary context while enhancing your technical skills. By the end of this module you'll be able to employ a variety of reflective methods to develop your own creative research proposal with the advanced communication skills to present, discuss and evaluate your work effectively.

Critical Debates – Term 1 (30 credits) Through a series of lectures, seminars and reading groups you'll explore the key concepts, ideas, issues and research methodologies relating to the practice and theory of Fashion. With particular focus on the cultural and social contexts within your chosen discipline, you'll produce a portfolio of critical responses to contemporary debates in research and professional practice.

Body and Space – Term 2 (30 credits) This module challenges you to explore the relationship between Fashion and the body through a combination of practical and written work related to your chosen pathway and area of interest. Looking specifically at notions of dialogue between our bodies and the garments we wear, you'll justify how your work is influenced by its relationship to the body and how you might inform and evolve your practice in light of this exploration.

Advanced Research – Term 2 (30 credits) Through a series of lectures, workshops, seminars and individual tutorials you will examine a diverse range of advanced approaches to Fashion research using both historical and contemporary sources. This module is designed to prepare you for your final Major Project by enabling you to explore the work of practitioners and scholars in Fashion, and the contemporary research problems that they face. By the end of this module you will have produced an illustrated Research Survey demonstrating your investigations and findings.

Major Project – Term 3 (60 credits) The final module is an opportunity for you to bring together the knowledge and skills that you have acquired during the course and apply them to a significant project of Fashion. Using research methodologies, concepts and processes previously explored in the course you will evaluate interrelationships between theory and practice. By the end of this final module you will have produced a fully realised, coherent, original body of work with significant commercial or conceptual relevance to the fashion industry, supported by critical and reflective written work that demonstrates your resolution and expertise.

Your skills, knowledge and understanding will be entirely assessed by coursework including practical projects, oral presentations and supporting written work. There are no exams and no compulsory catwalk shows.
