About the specialisation

  • Fashion Design is an area of specialisation within the Academy Profession (AP) Degree programme in Design, Technology & Business. 

    The programme is located in Herning, and teaches basic skills that will come in handy in your future career, or if you choose to continue your studies on our BA top-up programme. 

    The course programme centres on women’s wear and offers you a basic understanding of the design profession as well as applied theories and methods within the fashion and lifestyle sector. You will gain basic design skills as well as insight into the entire design process, from the first sketches to production. You will learn about target groups, trends and tendencies, and how to navigate in the fashion industry. 

    You will learn to take a position on existing brands, and to create a flow in your collection that matches the identity of a brand. 

    All sketches are done by hand but you are also taught Adobe’s Graphic Design tools so that you can work out a presentation of your collection. 

    With an AP degree in Fashion Design, you will get to work in teams with other designers as well as pattern designers, marketing professionals and web managers from the lifestyle and fashion sectors. The course will introduce you to the many different professions you will encounter once you finish your education. Expect to collaborate with the other international programmes at Design, Technology and Business.
