The Fashion Design BA (Hons) programme focuses on high-end (haute couture) and ready-to-wear fashion design, using both manual skills and CAD. Students gain technical know-how in everything within this high-profile industry, from generating design ideas and developing concepts to production and marketing. They also gain experience and exposure in the real world through local and international competitions, projects and internships with our industry partners.
The Director of the Fashion Faculty is Stefán A.R. Orschel-Read. Stefán was himself a BA (Hons) graduate of Central St. Martins and a Masters graduate of the Royal College of Art. Our Fashion Faculty consists of creative lecturers who have experience as fashion industry practitioners and academic lecturers and who also actively work on their own fashion brands or projects.
Final collections by senior students are proudly presented in the annual Shanghai Fashion Week. Some of our graduates continue their studies at overseas universities, while others launch their own fashion brand.
