The Diploma in Fashion & Retail Design is a programme that develops students' capability in the international fashion and retail industry. Fashion is an international industry that demands talented fashion designers who are able to innovate and develop creative designs that can compete in the global market.

The Fashion & Retail Design programme responds to the direct needs of the global industry. The diploma emphasizes innovation and creativity in Fashion & Retail Design while providing the students with the technical knowledge necessary for a successful entry into the fashion industry. We produce graduates who have an all-round talent in the fashion industry - from fashion design, manufacturing, and retail design, to merchandising and fashion management. Students are also exposed to fashion photography and journalism to have an extra advantage.

The 3-year programme ensures students will obtain a firm foundation in research, design methods, and practical skills in drawing, communications, and fashion photography. Students also work on live industry projects and are exposed to fashion management and merchandising. In the program, the students are introduced to the skills of construction in sewing, flat pattern drafting, and illustration. Field trips to showrooms, museums, and factories as well as special projects and lectures by guest speakers help broaden the knowledge of the fashion industry. In the final year, students begin to specialize and develop an area of expertise. Whilst most of the graduates go on to become fashion designers, others decide to move into fashion management and merchandising.
