Fashion is the most visible of industries – it’s exciting, it’s dynamic and it’s everywhere. We try to relate our course to the world of work through our live projects, and to the realities of the fashion industry. We encourage students to gain part-time work experience whilst they’re on the course – retail, customer service and volunteering all offer opportunities to develop useful skills and attributes.

We’ll take you on a range of visits, which may include The Clothes Show Live, along with trips to various cities such as London, Manchester, Birmingham etc., to visit a range of inspirational galleries and exhibitions. You’ll get plenty of notice of these activities so that you can budget accordingly, some visits may be free, but others will incur a charge varying with the nature of the visit and the distance travelled. Such charges will be kept to a reasonable rate.  

Before you begin your course, you’ll need to make sure you’re prepared with the right equipment. Many of our courses need specialist health and safety clothing, but we’ve made it simple - some of your essentials and college branded clothing can be bought from our online shop.

For your course, you will need:

  • A tablet, smartphone or laptop to take notes in lectures and seminars
  • You may wish to use your own laptop to work on your designs both at college and in your own time
  • A3 sketchbooks
  • Sewing box equipment including dress making pins, hand sewing needles, fabric shears, pinking shears, tape measure, unpicker and pin cushion
  • Pattern master and tailors chalk
  • A range of pencils, pens, rubber and sharpener.
  • Masking tape
  • Glue stick
  • Paint brushes
  • Watercolours
  • A3 paper – to include tracing paper and cartridge paper
  • Adobe Creative Cloud – students can get an introductory offer on this package with a saving of 65% off the first year’s contract
  • USB stick and / or portable hard drive
  • You may wish to invest in your own sewing machine / overlocker to work on your projects at home in your own time.
