This course is perfect for fashion design and marketing students who wish to explore design, buyer behaviour and brand development in a UK and international context.

It will provide a link between the creative process of fashion design and an understanding of today’s fashion industry.

You will be introduced to fashion design in the UK, looking at British designers such as Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen, and you will learn how British fashion brands have created a distinct voice in both the UK and international markets.

The course will include visits off-campus to galleries, museums and places of interest that are relevant to fashion students and fashion branding and promotion excursions to the high street, which will help you to identify key themes to support your project!

This course is also part of the NTU Global Summer School which attracts undergraduate students from colleges around the world.
