Northbrook College – Fashion Courses

14-12-2006   


Northbrook College:


Fashion & Textile Design


 


Northbrook’s Fashion Design, Fashion Media Promotion and Surface and Textile Design courses aim to produce designers and fashion promoters who are instilled with the skills and commercial awareness to make them ready for a career in the fast moving world of Fashion, Surface and Textile Design.


 


The relationship between our design and our media/promotion courses helps consolidate the market aware approach that our courses promote. All students are made aware of the business context of fashion and the promotional and commercial functions that support the design activities of the industry.


 


Our excellent resources include spacious studios and workshops, printed textiles workshops, knit workshop and print room. A range of Flexible Learning Areas provide open access to resources such as e-macs, PCs, periodicals, videos, discs, cuttings and materials libraries and industry and technical information.


 


Students from the BA programmes have recently exhibited in Paris ‘Indigo’ Trade Show, New Designers, Graduate Fashion Show and local museums. Student work is often entered for external competitions such as the RSA Bursary.



 


Careers and Further Education


 


Students are encouraged to operate effectively as designers in the Fashion and Textile Industry using the skills gained on their courses to pursue careers as: designers, design directors, consultant designers and forecast directors. Previous students have established positions at Alexander McQueen, Duffer of St George, John Richmond, Diesel, Hooch and Onega (Japan). All programmes take place in our excellent fashion facility at the College’s West Durrington Campus.
