Since 2008 the BA (Hons) Fashion Design Programme has provided globally facing fashion education as part of a British Higher School of Art & Design franchise partnership with University of Hertfordshire.
Since its inception BA (Hons) Fashion Design has provided an unprecedented opportunity for undergraduate students and alumni to challenge, re-define and further establish the creative and professional landscape within Russia. This reflects the rapidly responsive nature of the fashion industry, one that demands creativity, originality and versatility in a changing global context.
BA (Hons) Fashion Design has inspired an internationally facing generation of fashion designers, entrepreneurs, thought leaders and creative disruptors that have redefined the perception of Russian fashion talent on both a local and global platform.
Our educational strategy fosters conceptual integrity, curiosity, experimentation and innovation while encouraging risk, bravery and imaginative curiosity. This process is underpinned by critical dialogue, technical dexterity and a commitment to craftsmanship.
British art school traditions creatively intersect with the cultural capital and diverse personal histories of students while a focus on social responsibility and sustainability fuel meaningful contributions to an ever-changing and complex global landscape.
The Alumni community attracts international press and acclaim, with features in i-D, Dazed Digital, British Vogue, L’Officiel, Vogue Russia, Vogue Italia, ShowStudio, New York Times, Elle Russia, Calvert Journal and The Guardian.
