Program Description

2

Whatever your interests or ambitions, we offer an exciting range of fashion courses in our dedicated department, taught by specialist fashion professionals.

Our excellent links with Higher Education fashion and textiles courses in the London Area means that we can help you prepare a successful fashion course application.

Many of our students have progressed onto Higher Education, successfully set up small businesses, or gone on to work within the fashion industry. We have a reputation for the high standard of work produced, and entry to our courses is often competitive.

We cater for beginners through to the very experienced, aiming to be as flexible as possible to meet individual needs. Acceptance onto all our fashion courses is by individual interview. Where appropriate you will be asked to bring examples of your work. At interview we can build a personal study programme taking into account your existing skills and time available.

Course Overview

This well-structured programme is designed for students with basic sewing skills to learn and develop some essential sewing and pattern cutting techniques to prepare them for employment or self-employment in the fashion industry. Through exercises in class, you will learn how to construct a skirt block and a variety of stylistic variations, as well as some key garment making techniques and processes. Homework each week will help to reinforce learning. Students wishing to further develop their skills in this area are able to build upon this learning by continuing their studies on the follow-on certificate programme.
