hey, is it possible to study fashion design with photography (or specifically with fashion photography) or is it in any way possible to combine these 2? I know e.g. at UAL there is a course for fashion design and for fashion photography, so would this be possible to study both?

sorry if that's a silly question haha

Yes you can. However, some fashion design courses have a fashion photography module.


However Solent University does have Fashion Photography with Design but in a Foundation Year. In this way, you will decide which route you want to take "Fashion Design with Photography" or "Fashion Photography with Design"

To be fair it won't be easy to become professional in both field at the same time unless you run very small business of your own to start off with. Then this course will be an ideal for you. However if you cannot find the course you want, you can always opt for Fashion Design with Photography and then do short fashion photography stand alone course - for example 12 weeks, when you graduate from the Fashion Design.

But I must tell you that I used to run my own online fashion business, I barely had the time to do the photography work even on mannequins!!

It is always best to know what you really want to do after your graduation.

I wish you the best of luck to decide what you want and which course you will go for. There is no wrong answer

thank you so much!!

I am interested in both of these fields, but I will definitely try to choose one.

if you don't mind me asking, you said you used to run your online fashion business, what are you doing now? I mean, are you working in the field still, but not running your own business?

Hi VanillaCream and Laurafinlinson18,

I thought I'd just jump in here to give you a bit more info about UAL and London College of Fashion (which is our largest college). As it says above, you can study Fashion Photography at LCF, although this is very different to Fashion Design. At LCF, we have three schools - Design, Media and Business, with all the design areas under the Design school and photography in the media school. While it is true that we don't have a course that mixes these things together, a lot of projects are very collaborative, and you mind find yourself working with design/photography/styling students as you might in the industry. LCF's media courses are mainly based at Lime Grove (West London), and the Design courses are based on other sites, however from 2023, LCF will come together on one campus in the Olympic Park, so there will be even more opportunity to collaborate and work in a cross-disciplinary way.

It's worth having a look at the LCF Open Days and also our Graduate Showcase to see the kind of work that is produced and find out more about which course might be best for you.

Best wishes,

Sian
