Your complete guide to a short course in Fashion Design

Everything you need to know about studying a short course in Fashion Design

part of Arts, Design & Architecture

Fashion Design is the field where you will learn to make styling decisions, from clothes to accessories. Fashion Design is ideal for creative people, who like matching and playing with colours, textures, and materials. Depending on what area of fashion you want to focus on, you can dedicate haute couture or ready-to-wear clothing. Either way, you will need to create products that are aesthetically pleasing as well as wearable.

An important aspect of Fashion Design is also considering the size of the products and who is able to wear them. You will also learn how to manage a production line, be in line with seasonal trends or influence trends with a unique style, understand colour theory and how different fabrics and materials function and match together.

You will learn how to combine artistic principles and applied graphics, in order to transform an idea into an appealing product. Some of the branches you can specialise in are: clothing design, footwear design, accessories design, and others.

Courses will combine various aspects of theory and practice, all in the search of the perfect aesthetic. You will explore and master sewing, drawing, fashion history, as well as the textile industry. Afterwards, you will apply what you learned in a practical setting, by creating your own high-end fashion objects. Fashion Design is a form of art, so you will develop your creativity and practical skills, as well as the ability to think in three dimensions and turn great ideas into actual reality.

Fashion Design will help you become a successful fashion designer, retail buyer, retail manager, stylist, or textile designer.
