BA(Hons) Fashion Promotion

 

Over recent years the BA(Hons) Fashion Promotion course at the University of Central Lancashire has gained an excellent reputation throughout the fashion industry for producing innovative creative and professional graduates. The same course exactly we brought at AAS College and it’s the first of its kind in the whole country.

This course produces independent, creative and industrious graduates who gain prestigious positions within the fashion industry. This is attributed not only to the creative project work undertaken throughout the course but also the essential experiences gained whilst visiting fashion related industries.

The range of choice in work experience covers areas of trend prediction, styling, public relations, marketing, promotion, visual merchandising, fashion media and journalism.

Subjects and projects that you will study on the Fashion Promotion course are:

Styling, Fashion Marketing, Photography, Brand management, Graphic Design, Visual Merchandising, Market Research, Creative Thinking, Promotional Campaigns, Social Media, Advertising, PR.

Regular shows and exhibitions are an important aspect of the School where the Fashion Design and Fashion Promotion courses join forces at venues such as the final fashion show.

Assessment is continual and can take the form of individual presentations or verbal critiques, group assessment work or seminar presentations. Modules are assessed through project-based work, and in some cases, a portfolio submission at the end of the module is required.

In the final year students are required to present a creative and innovative promotional campaign or styling portfolio, which will be presented on a static stand for assessment. Your portfolio will also be submitted with a range of further promotional and product development work as part of an exhibition.
