What can this course do for me?

Learning about design can be used as a tool for empowerment, both personally and for those you design for. This course will ignite your own passions, instil confidence and help you to understand your own creative journey; from student to fully fledged designer. This course teaches you the skills needed to harness fashion accessory design in your own way.

With an accredited work placement in the second year, students will get the opportunity to work with the likes of Ralph & Russo, Tatty Devine, Givenchy, Victor & Rolf and many others. Here are just a few of our success stories...

Student using the materials library

Materials library

The Ravensbourne materials library is curated by Material ConneXion, a business that introduces brands to the latest material innovations.

The materials scientists at Material ConneXion select innovative materials relevant to the courses at Ravensbourne and that reflect current trends in design and manufacturing.

Samples of these materials are then added to the library so students and staff can browse the physical collection for inspiration, material ideas and applications.

The library hosts 1,500 material samples and an interactive table for further research and access to the Material ConneXion database.

External visitor information

If you wish to come and see the materials library and have a short tour, please contact us to organise.

The materials library can be used by external students registered with the SCONUL access scheme.

Prototyping suite

Prototyping suite

Our rapid prototyping suite helps students to turn ideas into realistic proofs of concept with the use of state-of-the-art 2d and 3d printing and fabrication.

Students can run off a working 3d prototype in less than a day, laser cut a range of 2d and 3d printed materials or use the latest dye-sublimation fabric printers to add incredible patterns to fabric.

We also have one of the world’s first and best multi-material Polyjet printers to produce detailed and precise prototypes that have a final-product look and feel.

Training is provided on specialist equipment and our helpful and friendly staff are on hand to support you in turning your ideas into working prototypes.
