What the programme will give you


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.

Entry requirements


Do you have a strong passion for fashion or working already in a creative sector and have a sound concept for developing your own clothing line? Then this could be the course for you!


Once on the programme you should be motivated to create a collection which represents your strengths and is innovative and individual. In order to complete your collection and the course, you will need to demonstrate research into current trend predictions, colour and fabric forecasting, range planning and demonstrate a synthesis of knowledge, skills and understanding to realise design solutions.


You need to develop a cohesive theme which can be used for design and presentation purposes and which will be carried through to the final outcomes. You will need to show that you have researched and identified a target market. Finally all work should be analysed and self-evaluated. These are all necessary in order to successfully demonstrate that you have a professional approach to developing a collection.
