Whether you have a keen interest in contemporary fashion or historical dress, this course will develop your understanding of the changing significance of what we wear, from the late eighteenth century to the present day. Taught by experts in fashion history, you will learn about the making and use of clothing in the past and present. Engaging with a range of images, objects and texts, you will explore how fashion and dress relate to social, political and cultural identities and meanings. You will be encouraged to work individually and in groups, and will graduate equipped with a wide range of written, oral and exhibition-based presentation skills. You will develop as a critical thinker, researcher and communicator ready for work in fashion or any number of industries. You will have access to resources including our Dress History Teaching Collection, as well as our world-renowned Design Archives and Screen Archive South East, all based at the university.
