Fashion design at the University of Brighton is known for an exciting and energetic design philosophy, fashion research excellence and strong links with the fashion industry. Our graduates from both the fashion and textiles courses are employed in prestigious fashion houses worldwide and have established their own companies and design labels.
Textiles at the University of Brighton fosters world-leading research that includes cutting-edge textile technologies, sustainable textiles, as well as a strong tradition of the social and historical understanding of textile use and manufacture. We maintain strong links with industry in both our research and our textiles degree courses.
Our taught courses are developed within this progressive research context and allow undergraduate textile students to specialise in knit, print and weave. Graduates from the textiles courses are employed in prestigious fashion houses worldwide and have established their own companies and design labels.
Our Textiles and Fashion with Business Studies courses prepare students you for work in industry and offers the opportunity to study towards a 3 or 4 year BA(Hons) award or a 4-year MDes integrated-masters level qualification.
Postgraduate opportunities at Brighton include our MA in Sustainable Design and PhD study in fashion.
A key figure in the development of education in fashion and textiles, Jake Leith's interests lie in printed textiles and business practice.
