School of Art and Design

BA (Hons) Fashion and Textiles Design

Welcome and Preparation

A very warm welcome from the Fashion and Textile Design staff team.

We look forward to meeting you in September, and hope that in the meantime you enjoy your summer.  In preparation for your course, please keep practising your core skills:

  • Researching
  • Design development
  • Drawing
  • Illustration
  • Styling
  • Photography
  • Digital skills
  • Reading
  • Course trips to exhibitions and galleries for inspiration and ideas.

It is also important to keep up-to-date with what is going on culturally, and in the industry, so make sure you read the broadsheet newspapers and magazines (think Lula, Love and Pop, not Heat), and take a look at fashion & textiles related websites, such as Business of Fashion, Drapers Online, Style Clicker, Dazed Digital etc.

Have a great summer and we will see you soon!
