Why Study Fashion Design?

Fashion contributes to almost every aspect of culture and society worldwide.  Truth is, even those who claim to have no interest in fashion still value style as highly a substance. We’re instinctively programmed to assign value in accordance with what we see, which is why the global fashion industry has such guaranteed long-term relevance.  Looking good is all about feeling good, which is where the appeal of fashion design lies.  The sector is already more lucrative than it has ever been and continues to evolve at record-pace.  Gaining access to the global fashion sector has never been easy, but nonetheless promises incredible rewards for those who make it.  So whether new to fashion design or right on the edge of going pro, there’s never been a better time to explore everything this incredible sector has to offer!

Course Syllabus

This exclusive Level 1 Fashion Design Award provides an introductory overview of one of the world’s most fascinating creative industries.  Build the skills and knowledge you’ll need to make a successful entry to the global fashion sector over two detailed modules as follows:

Module 1 - Fashion Design: Introduction

A journey through the recent history of the fashion industry is taken in the first module, which also explores its evolution up to the present day.  Some of the most iconic and influential fashion trends of the 20th and 19th centuries are discussed, along with the objectives of the fashion industry and the importance of predicting future fashion movements.

Module 2 - Essentials of Dress Designing & Colour Selection

In the second module, candidates explore some of the most important elements at the heart of effective dress design.  A variety of garment types and their unique characteristics are discussed, along with the strategic selection of colour combinations and the impact colour selection has on the appeal and interpretation of the final garment.

Career Path

This introductory Level 1 Fashion Design Award provides the perfect foundation upon which to continue studying the subject at a higher level.  Alternatively, the skills and knowledge you acquire throughout the course could prove useful in the practical setting of your choosing.  Entry-level positions in fashion quickly give way to much more fulfilling and rewarding roles.  As a newcomer to fashion design, you can expect to earn approximately £20,000 plus benefits.
