This programme aims to provide designers with an in-depth understanding of global fashion trends and requirements. It places emphasis on design conceptualisation, independent research, creative application and artistic expression, and provides a design-focused environment for students to follow their chosen path to generate a range of design-oriented, decision-making skills that are significant in the fashion industry.
