Fashion Media and Industries

Focus on the business side of fashion and the emergence of new and developing creative roles within the industry.

This programme focuses on the communication and the business of fashion. The fashion industry continues to evolve over time. Globalisation, new dimensions of commerce and technological advancements have propelled the industry into an age of unprecedented change. An understanding of the interplay between fashion media, fashion entrepreneurship and the socio-cultural significance of fashion underscores the competitive edge of this programme.

The programme is developed in response to the growing need to cover the spectrum of new creative roles within the fashion and lifestyle industries. You will acquire a broad range of skills and understand areas such as Art Direction, Branding, Entrepreneurship, Fashion Curation, Fashion Narratives, Fashion Retail, Image-making and Marketing. The aim is to provide the local and international fashion industry with Strategic Designers and Creative Thinkers. You will graduate with the skills and know-how to thrive in a fast-moving, rapidly changing and increasingly demanding global fashion industry.

This programme offers two specialisms: 

  • Fashion Journalism, Styling, Art Direction and Fashion Photography reflects the emergence of new and developing creative roles within the fashion industry and is designed to offer you opportunities within these increasingly influential and evolving fields. 
  • Marketing and Branding, Fashion Curation, and Entrepreneurship focuses on key issues such as innovation, creativity and new product development, while introducing a more specialist in-depth approach to branding and marketing communication theories and practices within the fashion space. The innovative inclusion of training in a disciplined curatorial approach brings a new perspective and rigour to your understanding of retail, fashion merchandising, marketing and creative management, giving you both the tools and the language to realise your creations.

Industry and Community Engagement (20 CU)
This module is designed to enable you to broaden your knowledge of the cultural and creative industries by placing you, as a learning professional, within a professional work environment.

You will map your acquired skills, interests and aspirations against current (and future) opportunities in the cultural and creative industries, while putting to practice skills and knowledge gained in the classroom. You are required to attend various industry preparation workshops, such as resume-writing, interview skills, and etc., as part of this module.

In fulfilment of this module, you can choose one of the following options: 

Option A: Industry-based Internship(s)
You will independently source and apply for internship opportunities. You are required to identify your interest and career-trajectory. These opportunities should be in an organisation where the job functions are related to your discipline. 

The internship may be with a single organisation or an accumulation of short-term work with different companies, to accumulate the minimum 200 hours of on-the-job training. The internship may be spread across a number of days/weeks and need not be a full-time position. Where possible, you are encouraged to go beyond the minimum hours in order to showcase your talent and abilities, which will aid your quest for permanent employment and/or gain more opportunities to learn about the job and industry. 

All internships must be approved by the Programme Leader, prior to commencement, to align with learning aims and outcomes. 

Option B: Negotiated Projects
You will take a proactive and entrepreneurial approach to identify and create a niche for yourself, within the cultural and creative industries. You may undertake a combination of the following types of projects:

  • Industry Live Project: You can source for an industry project, or this can be facilitated through the programme.
  • Entrepreneurial Project: You may devise a business proposal and execute it. 
  • Community Engagement Project: You can engage with a community of your preference, and develop and execute an initiative for them. 
  • Short-term internship (about 100 hours)

To ensure that you fulfil the learning outcomes of this module, all proposals and short-term internship opportunities must be discussed and approved by the Programme Leader. 

Dissertation (40 CU)
This module is the culmination of the research and contextual knowledge that you have acquired during the course of your study. You will be required to undertake in-depth critical research, and present a coherent argument based on investigation and analysis. The chosen topic will be relevant to your main course of study, and will be used to support and inform your specialist practice. It will demonstrate your deep appreciation of your field, and competency of key approaches and methodologies to contextualise it.

You will demonstrate an ability to identify a research topic that is close to your practice or field of study through a clear literature review, and present relevant arguments and hypotheses in the written form of between 6,000 to 8,000 words.

Before commencing your dissertation, you will be required to develop a research proposal outline to demonstrate your research question and approach to completing the dissertation. In consultation with your supervisor, you may form your dissertation around an exegesis that foregrounds your major creative studio practice. Programmes where you are eligible to develop a piece of creative practice as part of your dissertation may be negotiated with your supervisor. In this instance, the word count for the written element may be negotiated, but a minimum word count of 4,000 words is required.

You are expected to undertake a significant amount of independent and self-motivated research. You will be assigned a supervisor who will provide guidance in your research work. You will also be required to attend all dissertation-related classes.

Graduating Project (60 CU) 
This module is designed for you to take on a self-directed professional role in translating the areas of interest, which you will have established through your dissertation work and complimentary self-directed research efforts, into a strong portfolio of work.  

This body of work will demonstrate your strengths as a designer and as a critical and creative thinker. Your project development will be conducted in response to a concise project brief, which you will submit during the first semester as result of a preliminary in-depth research. Through writing your own brief, you will learn to identify and clearly articulate the anticipated design challenges. Your project brief is likely to be motivated through insights that you have gained in conjunction with your dissertation. Depending on your preferences, you will be able to work independently or in a team, as well as collaborate with degree students from other design programmes. 

This module provides you with the opportunity to apply previous knowledge and skills acquired in solving a self-initiated project to produce a creative body of work, demonstrating creative independence. A high level of creative thinking and understanding of the contemporary fashion context, together with critical abilities and proficiency in your specialist area of design study, will allow you to negotiate a direction and propose the final outcome of your own Graduation Project. 

You will learn to manage the design process, defining project development stages and benchmarks. You will undertake interim evaluations, tests and experiments that influence and inform the final design outcomes. You will have to present part or all of your design process and outcomes to different audiences, and engage in critical dialogues with both peers and industry collaborators. This will help you get a broader perspective of your undertaken project in order to objectively take design decisions.

To support your design practice at this level, you are expected to document and keep an updated Creative Process Journal, which will gather visual and written material in support of your practice. You will be critically assessing your development along with your research findings. Your choices and progress in relation to the design development will have to be professionally and convincingly articulated.

You are required to submit all mandatory assignments and show professional studentship. Commitment and full class attendance are key aspects of achieving satisfactory studentship for each level of study, and they will be taken into account for the assessment of this module.
