Fashion Design

This course will enable you to create a complete design portfolio that will launch you into the world of fashion design! Perfect for the creative brain – this course will enable you to develop your ideas and gain the technical knowledge that is required to create your own label, create for existing brands or simply create bespoke designs.

The ability to draw is an advantage. Students with little or no drawing skills are strongly advised to study this course in conjunction with the Certificate of Fashion Drawing, due to illustration being an important component of each assignment.
