(Accredited by MQA) MQA/FA1515

Creative Interpretation & Trend Setting



The Textile and Fashion Design course caters to the needs of students interested in becoming a textile or fashion designer. The Diploma course consists of two major modules, namely Textile Design and Fashion Design.


Textile Design provides training in conceptual development, creative interpretation and technical production as well as knowledge relevance which is crucial to the textile design industry. On top of that, traditional design and local content will be emphasized. An industrial attachment and a practical workshop will further provide valuable practical experience for the students.


Fashion Design equips the students with fashion and textile knowledge, marketing and practical skills. Design concepts and technical skills are inter-dependent and mutually enhancing in the training approaches. The programme is structured to cover all aspects of fashion design from basic to advanced drafting, draping, construction and designing. Studio projects include functional to experimental clothing designs.
