Study type Taught


This two-year pathway is designed for prospective students who are interested in developing their menswear design skills and applying them in an industry setting.

It is designed for individuals who are particularly interested in establishing their own menswear brand but who would like to gain industry experience while doing so. The course includes a year of project-based study and a placement year within the industry.

You are required to have a BA in a fashion subject or a significant amount of industry experience. Additionally, you must have an awareness of the international marketplace and your positioning within it to launch your brand upon successful completion of the course.

The project-based curriculum has two core modules that are progressively designed to develop your confidence in an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary context. These projects aim to encourage imaginative, practical and theoretical knowledge.

Our graduates have gone on to enjoy a range of roles in places such as Bottega Veneta, Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, Adidas and Charles Jeffrey among others. Some have also set up their own businesses. Notable alumni include Priya Ahluwalia, winner of the Queen Elizabeth II Award 2021, winner of the shared LVMH Prize 2020, New Generation prize 2019 and H&M Prize 2018, Mateo Velazquez, finalist at Hyeres 2021, and San Kim, whose inflatable garment design went viral in 2019.
