Summary

MA Fashion Cultures has 2 specific but interrelated pathways: History and culture; fashion and film. On this course students will have the opportunity to study fashion and dress within its historical, social and cultural contexts.

**What can you expect?**

A dynamic in-depth exploration of theoretical and methodological perspectives will give students a grounding in the history of fashion and an underpinning of social and cultural theory for both pathways. Students will then undertake more specialised study on their chosen pathway.

On the history and culture pathway students will investigate fashion as object, representation and practice through an interdisciplinary approach from both historical and contemporary perspectives. On fashion and film, students will investigate the ongoing changing relationship between fashion, costume and forms of film as well as the relationship between cinema and consumption within a global context.

While students will choose one pathway, they will have the opportunity to attend the lectures for the other pathway if they wish to, so they can gain the fullest possible understanding of a variety of disciplines and their impact upon visual and material cultures.

This course is based at John Prince’s Street, London College of Fashion’s most central site. Located at the heart of Oxford Circus the site has convenient access to every high street shop that London has to offer. The local areas of Marylebone, Mayfair and Soho are home to many of London’s main attractions, points of interest and museums.
