Bachelor of Branded Fashion Design

Billy Blue College of Design

More than merely putting flamingoes onto Hawaiian shirts, the Bachelor of Branded Fashion Design is an all-inclusive qualification that teaches you the business of what we wear as well as actually making the outfits. That means you’ll be called upon to create inspiring designs, develop and produce them for market… and deal with all the other people you’ll need to take those pink birds in your head and make them a gaudy reality. Pattern-makers, garment constructors and the catwalk-dominating fashionistas we count as friends and fashion industry partners. If you’d like to create your own label, learn the role of strategy in fashion design and / or use clothes as a force for good in a world of sweatshops, this is a serious and exciting course.
