    Hey, anyone got any advice for a foundation student deciding between either costume or fashion design at uni?
    I love historical fashion & want the skills to create really tailored and exaggerated pieces, however, I don't want to be solely a costume designer and ultimately want to work in fashion & see my work on a catwalk.....................anyo ne had similar thoughts or have any advice?

    I know this is no help but I am in exactly the same situation as you. I can choose between the two. I really enjoy designing and creating really extravagant pieces, like dresses and suits etc. But can't decide which route would be best.

    Hey graceebrk,

    Hope your having a great Tuesday!

    I think you should have a look at the fashion course we have to offer here at Ravensbourne. We don't have a specialist course in terms of Costume design and tailoring; however, the course is focused on developing the type of fashion you are interested in therefore allowing you the flexibility to experiment in various areas such as tailoring and ready to wear. I would say if you are worried about what the course has to offer why not have a look at the BA Fashion 'What your course will look like' section on the website to gain a deeper insight into what the course is about and what you will be doing on the course.

    In addition to this, if you want to you can also have a look at potentially coming to an open day and checking out the uni and the course and speaking to the course leaders on the day. I hope this has helped you out a bit.
