Why Study Fashion Design?
Worldwide, the fashion industry is immune to economic downturn and general unrest. While other industries waver in the face of adversity, the global apparel industry is continuously growing at an impressive rate. In fact, the industry as a whole has an estimated global value in the region of 1 Trillion Euros. That’s almost double the size and value of the combined pharmaceutical industry worldwide! In terms of job security, earnings potential and career progression, no industry offers the same rewards as fashion design. It’s simply a case of getting that all-important foot-in-the-door, which is where our exclusive Level 2 Fashion and Design Courses could make all the difference!
Our dynamic online design courses (part time) offer a flexible, accessible and enjoyable alternative to traditional classroom studies. Get to know the contemporary fashion industry across four fascinating modules as follows:
Unit 1: Introduction to Fashion Design
Module one lays the groundwork with a detailed exploration of the contemporary fashion sector, along with its recent history and evolution. Candidates explore the most important fashion trends of the last three centuries, along with the concept of the fashion cycle and the origins of fashion.
Unit 2: Fashion Forecasting
The second module examines the essential role of fashion forecasting, using knowledge of past trends and the fashion cycle to predict the next ‘big thing’. The role fashion forecasting plays at the heart of the global fashion industry is investigated in-depth, along with effective techniques and strategies for accurate fashion forecasting.
Unit 3: Elements of Design
Course module three introduces candidates to the four most important elements of design - Lines, Shapes, Colours and Textures. The importance of carefully considering and meticulously balancing each of these elements is discussed, along with their practical applications in clothing design.
Unit 4: Principles of Design
Concluding the course, module four provides a detailed introduction to the principles of Emphasis, Harmony, Balance and Repetition. Each of the four major principals of design is considered independently and as a contributor to a cohesive final piece.
