This Fashion Collection Design Development part-time course is in response to the clear and up till now unmet need, for a professionally focused course to help participants produce their own portfolio and collection. This part-time programme bridges that often unfathomable gap between having a fashion degree or relevant experience and having what it takes to be successful in the fashion industry. This course is geared to give you what you need in order to take that extra step towards fashion success.

The course entails creating your own fashion design collection from scratch. Designing and drawing your own fashion collection, selecting colours trends and fabrics, undertaking customer analysis and preparing worksheets with manufacturing specifications.


You get the opportunity to design a full collection to a professional standard, alongside a design work portfolio.

It is often a challenge to channel and structure all that creative input, knowledge, skills and inspiration acquired during a fashion course or work experience into designing your own collection. This Collection Design Development course will take you to the next level of intellectual growth and personal development. One where you will develop the insight and initiative to figure out what you need to know and what you need to do to realise your own successful collection. By acquiring more complex learning skills and carrying out more self-initiated enquiry, this part-time programme is a unique opportunity to put practical portfolio skills into more intellectually challenging context. Sounds complex but the aim is simple, to equip you with the diligence, decisiveness and direction to design and produce your own commercially successful collection. You will receive considerable individual coaching, support and assistance, so you can transform your ideas into a real clothing collection.

This course is perfect for you if:

  • you already have a bachelor’s degree and want to switch career;
  • you completed high school and want to move up on the career ladder;
  • you are not sure if you want to follow a full BA programme;
