BA Fashion overview

I keep hearing about the marvellous work that comes from the Fashion course at NUA.

Betty Jackson CBE
Fashion Designer


Fashion at NUA is committed to delivering vital technical skills required by the fashion industry. Under expert tuition you will develop couture levels of craftsmanship, high quality tailoring and technical skills combined with an innovative approach to design.

You’ll have the opportunity to work on live projects with designers and brands such as Hardy Amies, Chloe, Mulberry, Topshop, Nicole Farhi, Monsoon and Marks & Spencer.

You will devote workshop time to professional garment manufacture and creative pattern cutting with the support of the full-time technicians. The fashion team has a wealth of industry experience having sold own labels through Harrods and Harvey Nichols and having worked for designers including French Connection, Nicole Farhi, Jasper Conran, Valentino and Yohji Yamamoto.

In Year Three each student produces a final collection of garments showcasing their individual style and approach to design. You will graduate industry- ready with the relevant skills and attitude demanded by the workplace for the exciting and diverse fashion industry.
