“I don’t design clothes, I design dreams” – Ralph Lauren

Fashion Designing is the art of application of design and beauty to clothing & accessories. A career in fashion is both exciting and challenging while being ever changing.

With a January or July in-take, during our 2 year full time course at Xela we take our students through the process of conceptualising designs, and making them a reality. Our syllabus includes fashion illustration, technical drawing, pattern drafting & manipulation, garment construction, textiles, accessories & styling. Our business skills module covers all aspects of starting and running a business of your own. By the time our students graduate they will have their own paying customers.

Our graduates are equipped to work worldwide with their qualification and can be found in careers such as * retail environments, * window dressing, * merchandising, *stylist, *fashion co-ordinators, *trend forecasters, *designer for large corporations or ready to wear or bespoke tailoring.
