Our Value

Design that means business

Through inspirational teaching we nurture the next generation of creative leaders and thinkers who work in responsible, analytical and ingenious ways. Our strategic commercial partnerships support enterprise. Students benefit from our connections with industry and so does the industry.

Making Style not Fashion

In design, we teach a combination of heritage and radical thinking. Craftsmanship and new technology with inn-depth design research approach. We encourage students to build their own sensibility towards aesthetics. It's more than a fashion fad, its all about timeless style.

Tell Stories

We nurture every student's distinctive voice, teaching them how to challenge and define the future of fashion through cutting-edge media approaches across all channels: broadcast, print, digital, interactive, experiential — and experimental.

Designing lives

Design can change lives. Through teaching, specialist research, and collaborative work, we empower our students to think differently, using fashion to examine the past, build a sustainable future with architecture, and improve the way we live.
