Advanced Diploma in Fashion and Retail
This course is designed to address the skills shortages in the fashion design and production sector. Learners undertaking the course learn important skills required for the fashion retail sector, together with basic entrepreneurial knowledge to support those learners who would like to set up their own atelier in the future. The first year of the programme offers learners the cultural, theoretical and creative aspects of the subject. Another important area is pattern drafting and sewing techniques in preparation for the second year. The second year of studies provides learners with the opportunity to develop further their knowledge and skills in the specialisation. They will participate in apprenticeship as well as present their own design concepts in a fashion collection as their final major project.
