BA (Hons) Fashion

General

Program Description

Fashion is more than clothes. It’s about self-expression and identity. Throughout the BA (Hons) Fashion degree at LCCA, you’ll be encouraged to find your own fashion design identity and to leave a noticeable imprint on all of the items you design.

From your first year, you’ll explore the cultural, economic, environmental and sustainable factors that underpin the world of fashion while learning practical techniques that you can utilise in many roles. These include drape, fabric manipulation, constructed textile, pattern cutting, garment manufacture and trailers. You’ll learn how to take the concepts you design through drawing and illustration work and create marketable products. Additionally, you’ll also study media, photography and styling, portfolio presentation and computer-aided design.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have developed your industry expertise through a work placement as well as a range of transferable skills that will make you a top candidate for a range of roles in the fashion industry.

Start working towards a career in a fast-paced industry today by enrolling on the BA (Hons) Fashion programme at LCCA, delivered in partnership with TEF Gold awarded institute the University for the Creative Arts.
