BFA - Fashion Design

Fashion Design is an influential and creative medium offering a dynamic means of personal expression. Fashion is fast to react to global socio-economic and cultural events and represents contemporary concerns of the designer and the wearer, as well as providing a dialogue between the past and the present.

The Whitecliffe Fashion Design major encourages students to challenge ideas, re-examine boundaries and foster creativity while experimenting and developing the strong technical skills required for a future in the fashion industry.

The Fashion Design major focuses on design development and research, pattern drafting and garment construction. Industry targeted workshops include fashion technology, pattern drafting, and garment construction, design and concept development, tailoring and fabric manipulation techniques. Studio practice is complemented by courses in fashion history, theory, illustration, and professional practices. Classes are small and provide a nurturing learning environment with a strong focus on individual students.
