Northumbria University Fashion

BA (Hons) Fashion at Northumbria offers you the opportunity to explore craftsmanship, aesthetics and the encapsulation of the body through a range of materials, pattern cutting, manufacturing processes, constructed knitwear and printed fashion fabrics. This four-year sandwich course has an established reputation for producing directional designers with the creative vision and the commercial realism to begin a career within the Fashion sector.

You will learn how to challenge the conventions of contemporary fashion through design research and critical reflection, set against the study of traditional values of high craftsmanship that underpin garment-making such as haute couture and tailoring.

We’ll help you to identify a personal fashion design philosophy through drawing and illustration, developing artisan craft skills, pattern cutting and constructing knitted fabrics and textiles. All this will be supported by contextual fashion studies and critical thinking to enable you to situate your own practice in the context of past and current design practice.
