MA Fashion overview

I encourage students to use contradictory materials and create unusual silhouettes. I like fashion which keeps questioning practice and aesthetic.

Sue Chowles
MA Fashion Unit Tutor


As the reputation of Fashion at NUA continues to grow we continue to invest. Facilities include three fully-equipped open plan studios overlooking the river. This provides a creative and supportive environment in which to refine and professionalise your practice.

Tutors are expert practitioners having sold their own labels through Harrods and Harvey Nichols and worked for designers including French Connection, Nicole Farhi and Roland Mouret. With this technical and creative guidance you will be encouraged to experiment with processes and materials as you question and extend the boundaries of your design.

Visiting industry professionals and studio technicians will support your exploration of bespoke tailoring, experimental cutting and draping methods; the traditions and craft of haute couture; hand and machine finishing techniques and the use of contemporary technologies.

You will master traditional and couture techniques while also developing your own style through innovative and conceptual design. With a focus on preparing you both intellectually and professionally for employment, the course attracts students who aspire to become leaders in the fashion industry.
