Design, Technology and Business (Fashion Design) About the programme: 
Fashion Design is an area of specialisation within the Academy Profession (AP) Degree programme in Design, Technology & Business.   

The course programme centres on women’s wear and offers you a basic understanding of the design profession as well as applied theories and methods within the fashion and lifestyle sector. You will gain basic design skills as well as insight into the entire design process, from the first sketches to production. You will learn about target groups, trends and tendencies, and how to navigate in the fashion industry.  You will learn to take a position on existing brands, and to create a flow in your collection that matches the identity of a brand.   

All sketches are done by hand but you are also taught Adobe’s Graphic Design tools so that you can work out a presentation of your collection.   

With an AP degree in Fashion Design, you will get to work in teams with other designers as well as pattern designers, marketing professionals and web managers from the lifestyle and fashion sectors. The course will introduce you to the many different professions you will encounter once you finish your education.  

Career opportunities 
With an AP degree specialising in Fashion Design you have the chance to work as an assistant within the fashion and lifestyle sector. On the basis of the designer’s premade sketches your job is to assist in developing the designer’s collection. For instance, you compile the right materials for the collection and work out a graphical presentation which is important for the production of the clothing.

Most of our AP degree graduates choose to do a BA top-up which gives you access to a wider range of career prospects.
