At undergraduate and postgraduate level the study of Fashion at AUB offers a broad and professional engagement with what is in fact a diverse subject area.
Staff members have expertise not only in the Design, Cutting and Manufacturing of industry quality garments but in areas such as Fashion Product Development, Fabric Design for Fashion, Creative Marketing Strategies, Digital Communication for Fashion, and industry standard computer aided design with the Lectra System. Lectra is the world leader in integrated fashion technology systems and the Arts University became a Lectra Education partner in 2006. In 2011 the AUB was invited by Lectra to become an advanced partner as a result of a proactive implementation and creative development collaboration with the company.
Fashion at the AUB is consistently engaged with all aspects of the industry, in terms of live projects with international companies such as Henri Lloyd and placement initiatives with companies such as Alexander McQueen, Baby Dior, Zandra Rhodes, Selfridges and Next.
As a member of the British Fashion Council staff and students are continually informed of national and international competitions as well as scholarship and industry opportunities while staff research, which includes expertise in areas such as 20th Century Chinese Fashion, Contemporary Accessories and Writing for Fashion strongly support the academic experience.
