Through studying Fashion at Hillview, students have amazing opportunities to experience a range of visits to exhibitions, events and places of artistic inspiration. They are able to attend London Fashion Weekend, enter prestigious national competitions and interact with industry professionals within a variety of situations.
Students will develop advanced skills in drawing, design, fabric manipulation, techniques and processes through using a wide range of media and materials. This will equip learners to study a range of Fashion, Textile and other related disciplines at university and provide them with the technical and communication skills needed to work in such industries. Fashion Drawing and Visual Communication are integral elements of the course, as they encourage students to develop a range of visual language skills, enabling them to become adept at creating and communicating original ideas and concepts.
Students will create innovative and unique garments within their coursework units, which will be showcased at the Hillview Fashion Show at the end of each year of study. They will also direct and participate in photo shoots, collaborating with Sixth Form Photography students and professional photographers.
Through experiencing such a wide range of Fashion and Textile-based disciplines, learners will be able to explore their talents and find their own individual pathway to innovation.
