BA Fashion History and Theory

BA Fashion History and Theory

Fashion History and Theory is the only undergraduate course in the UK dedicated to fashion studies. It offers a taught programme in the first year of study covering the history of Western dress from the Renaissance to the present day. It extends from this basis in the second year by engaging with academic themes and professional practice in units such as fashion and literature, the archive, fashion and film, methods and approaches, fashion curation, cataloguing dress and fashion journalism. The final year of study comprises a 10-12,000 word independent thesis and a collaborative project with an external partner. Past group projects have involved working with Pringle of Scotland, the British Library, Kensington Palace, Pucci, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and Somerset House. Fashion History and Theory trains students in the interpretation of fashion for the academy, the museum and industry.
