This programme promotes advanced research methods, individuality of creative thinking, innovations in cutting and interdisciplinary collaboration. With support from experienced staff, you will be encouraged to create interdisciplinary collaborations and take up work placements, both within the university and through its strong links with the Scottish textiles and fashion industry.
You will also investigate the connection between clothing, well-being and identity, by working with our leading Diversity Network initiative to challenge standardised ways that designers consider and celebrate the end consumer.
You will produce a body of practical and written work on an agreed topic, where you will integrate studio work, professional practice, theoretical and written studies as well as a lecture/seminar series focusing on media and material cultures. Set assignments will assess fashion design, experimental pattern cutting, drawing, life drawing and research skills.
