Now in its 60th year, Fashion at Northumbria University, Newcastle is renowned for its innovative courses and strong links in the fashion industry.
Based in an award winning building with excellent workshops, the fashion team within the School of Design is committed to continuing a studio culture tradition where craftsmanship is valued, intellectual freedom encouraged and creativity nurtured.
Here at Northumbria we offer a dynamic and exciting approach to fashion through active project-based learning, combining design practice knowledge with intellectual and transitional skills. Students then apply their creativity in real life scenarios through placements in industry in the UK, US, Europe or Asia. These placements give students the chance to develop specialist skills, a professional attitude, and the vision needed to challenge and lead as designers.
Our fashion programmes generate the knowledge and expertise that world-class designers need. Northumbria’s alumni graduates are employed in various roles for renowned brands such as Lanvin, Burberry, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Alexander McQueen, Worth Global Style Network, Concepts Paris, Nike and L'Oreal.
