The programme aims to emphasize innovation and creativity in fashion design while providing students the technical knowledge necessary for a successful entry into the fashion industry.

Field trips to showrooms, museums and factories help to broaden the knowledge of the fashion industry as do special projects and lectures by guest speakers.



Fashion design is the applied art dedicated to the design of clothing and lifestyle accessories, which generally mirror the cultural and social influences of that time. This includes all designs worn to create a statement about the individual or group of individuals. Fashion and Apparel Design incorporates all the production activities involved in the development and manufacture of apparel items for men, women and children. These include the manipulation and experimentation of textiles and trims to generate ideas that will then be translated into three-dimensional form through pattern drafting and / or draping and sewing.



By examining their own work and the work of their peers students learn to think critically about design.Students move on to the development of collections, with opportunities to present their creativity in fashion shows and competitions.Business practices, agency procedures, marketing, and client relations are studied to support the creative side of design and provide students with a realistic view of the world of business.
