Our MA programme will focus not only on design and garment construction techniques, but also on business aspects of creating, budgeting, costing and selling a fashion collection. Our main aim is to offer excellence in tutoring skills, taught by tutors with a wealth of contacts. Focusing on student employability, ensuring that students are industry ready, with a variety of essential skills.
The MA in Luxury Fashion will consist of 5 Units
Unit 1: Cappucci Atelier
Working with the Cappucci Atelier in Florence students will learn fundamental cutting techniques, used throughout Cappucci history. In the first 4 weeks, students will attend workshops, learning cutting skills, and experimenting with these to create a technical file. In the final 4 weeks, students will create one outfit, using the skills gained previously.
Unit 2: Experimentation and Reflection
On returning to the London campus, students will research their proposed creative ideas for their luxury fashion collection. Students will present their technical files, primary research and finalised garment from their experience at Cappucci.
Unit Two will be research led, with students focusing on areas within fashion, they feel they have a connection with. They will receive lectures on fundamental areas on creating a collection, from research, design development, construction and fabric selection.
An important part of unit one will concentrate on the business side of fashion, and the costs involved in creating a collection. This will prepare students with the skills needed to go straight into employment.
Students will then present their proposals to a panel of tutors and industry professionals.
Unit 3: Realisation:
Unit Three will focus on reflecting on the experimentations from Unit Two. They will reflect and act upon feedback given from tutors and industry professionals. Unit Three will be very student led, with them directing their own structures, creating and adhering to critical paths and schedules.
Students will begin cutting, sampling and printing. Finalising one final outfit towards their final collection.
Unit 4: Reflection, Realisation, finalisation:
