You'll be introduced to the University and the technical workshops and facilities available to you. The first stage includes a range of lectures and seminars and practical workshops where you’ll start to explore the relationship between theory and creative practice.
The aim of this unit is to enable you to situate your practice and outline a clear direction for your MA studies in creative direction for fashion. Facilitated through industry collaboration (analysis and reflection of an existing campaign or fashion rebrand and transformation), this unit runs simultaneously alongside the Research & Critical Enquiry unit.
Research & Critical Enquiry
The aim of this unit is that through research, critical enquiry and understanding of a range of cultural, social economic and industry contexts, will inform and enhance your project development.
Creative Concept Development & Consolidation
The skills, knowledge and critical perspectives acquired during previous units will support and inform the design and modification of your creative concept. The body of work will be appropriate for an intended market, target consumer and/or brand, and will clearly demonstrate creative vision in depth and scope; from brand work to book design, photography to film, editorial to exhibition.
Final Project Resolution & Promotional Launch
A culmination of your MA studies and work completed in the previous units. You will realise and present (on relevant platforms), a ‘no holds barred’, current creative concept and promotional launch strategy which clearly demonstrates key skills in art and design practice, visual communication and identity, and relevant industry collaboration (as appropriate).
