MA Design: Investigating Fashion Design, PG Cert Design: Investigating Fashion Design
A fast-paced, dynamic and demanding course with a strong emphasis on creativity and innovation underpinned with strong technical skills. Researchers on this course will engage with the wealth of fashionable dress resources held in the internationally renowned Fashion Museum, Bath. The course aims to enable students to work independently with the collection, whilst attending supporting lecture and seminar programmes. These will develop an understanding of fashion and its contexts through objects, and museum based study. Students will work with curators and museum professionals as well as academics and designers in order to fuse theory and practice and to develop innovative approaches to the study, display and dissemination of fashionable dress. Additionally, students are encouraged to present their research in a public arena and are offered the opportunity to study for a Postgraduate Certificate in Professional Learning.
