Our part-time courses are addressed to those who do not have the opportunity to follow an entire undergraduate education programme but are still eager to immerse themselves in all things to do with fashion. The part-time courses give you the chance to study one day a week for three months.
This part time course is the foundation in order to understand the intricacies from Concept to Commercialization within the Fashion Industry. Discover the different functions and how they relate to each other. This will empower you to identify an area you wish to specialize in. You will also be exposed to the latest shifts in the way the industry is doing business. Find the balance between the art and science in the fashion industry that will allow you to either advance or change your career path, or build up your own fashion brand.
The Fashion Styling part-time course gives you the opportunity to plan, develop and execute a creative strategy as set in fashion styling briefs. You will consider the factors that influence fashion styling and the relationships between designers, audience, content and application of photographic visual language. You will work through the process of research, planning, working with a photographer whilst shooting and producing prints. Aspects such as cultural connections, style, mood and effect will form part of your reflection and evaluation.
Technical production areas of fashion play an important part in building subject specific knowledge. Although European garment production has now largely moved overseas due to the globalisation of the industry, employers are still looking for staff with a sound knowledge of technical production areas, specifically production methods, fittings and effective cost management.
