Course Summary

The Postgraduate course in Fashion and Lifestyle Brand Studies is predominantly theoretical, analytical and research based, allowing individuals from related disciplines who do not necessarily have appropriate practical skills, to study at postgraduate level within the fashion environment. Individual projects will address a range of student led interests, supported by theoretical underpinning. Case Studies will inform the background issues emerging in the industry, whilst also exemplifying key directions for future markets. Trend forecasting and application, brand management, consumer demographics and industry analysis all underpin and facilitate the development of campaign planning and management.

Students can exit at Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma level. Teaching involves a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, presentations and industry liaison, and assessment is continuous. Students are expected to contextualize their work within a current framework, and develop evaluative skills in order to articulate their point of view, discussing and debating them in a peer group, consequently preparing them for a wide range of careers, including brand management, trend forecasting and brand consultancy. The course aims to develop students’ intellectual and imaginative power through a programme of study that is formed from cohesion between theory and practice. It provides graduates with a stimulating environment in which ideas can be exchanged and supported through factual creative research, developed and contextualised. We challenge our students to take a critical position in relation to existing theories and encourage new connections within the field of fashion that challenge traditional design boundaries.
