Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses.

Simply liking going clothes shopping won't prepare you properly for a fashion course. You need to be prepared to think analytically about clothes, study their history, and follow trends with an eager eye.

Have a practice with the scissors and sewing machine at home. This is a degree that needs a certain amount of natural talent. If you keep sewing your fingers together, consider a different path.

Good to Know

Undergraduate Fashion Degrees often require you to have an Art foundation Year 1st, or have a foundation year built in to the degree.
