About the Course
This course is the Pearson BTEC HND Art & Design (Fashion) diploma. Developed to respond to the needs of the industry, our curriculum will enable you to push the boundaries of your creativity in conceptual fashion design and textiles while gaining a solid foundation of professional techniques in garment construction, pattern cutting and computer aided design. Working on professional equipment, ranging from industrial sewing machines and K&L stands to modern digital resources including Gerber Technology and 3D printer, you will be supported in your studies by our experienced specialist tutors and guest lecturers.
Our ethos of supporting each student to expand their repertoire of skills in design and making combined with an outward facing industry focus has enabled our students to benefit from live projects across a range of disciplines. Our students have successfully engaged with industry professionals on projects including:
• A summer internship with a London Fashion Week designer, helping to create runway samples from original designs
• Costume design projects for local theatre groups, designing and creating costumes for dance and theatre performances
• Assisting a professional fashion stylist on an editorial fashion project
An HND is recognised as equivalent to the first two years of a Bachelor’s degree. Having completed the course you will have a nationally recognised qualification and may be able to progress to the third year of an undergraduate degree programme, find a job in the fashion industry, or even start your own fashion business. To achieve the full BA (Hons), you can progress onto our new BA (Hons) Fashion Top-Up degree programme (subject to validation).
In order to ensure that you make the best possible progress on your course, you will have regular feedback from your tutor, in a constructive and supportive environment.
