Subject

Fashion design

BA Fashion offers highly motivated students a nurturing environment which champions originality and innovation. On this course, you will work in a dynamic atmosphere which has already spawned many of fashion’s brightest talents. It is part of the Fashion programme.

Fashion is a fast-moving and diverse international industry. It has historical and social and significance, often underpinning our cultural values. BA Fashion at Central Saint Martins recognises this climate of diversity and cultural importance. Encouraging innovation and originality, the course will support your creative, practical and intellectual development. It will enable you to take advantage of the wide range of opportunities the industry can offer.

BA Fashion offers five pathways: Fashion Design Menswear; Fashion Design Womenswear; Fashion Print; Fashion Design with Knitwear; and Fashion Design with Marketing. Each pathway offers a unique combination of design, historical studies and theoretical studies led by tutors who are expert practitioners in their field. The Fashion Design with Marketing pathway is for designers who wish to also explore creative marketing activities operating alongside the international design industry. You will contextualise your creativity by researching and analysing the market sector you wish to compete in. Design and marketing shifts are always in the making. As such, there is a broad horizon in which creative graduates will play an important role. This may be as designers, marketing or brand specialists or fashion consultants.
