Wondering what skills you might need to enrol on a Fashion and Textiles course? Everything from creative to design skills will be useful, alongside a passion for staying abreast of the latest trends.

Discover a wealth of transferable skills when you embark on a fashion course at Blackburn College, from how to work as a team, to communication and marketing. If you already have some commercial awareness – for example, if you have worked in a retail environment – you will also have the edge on a Textiles course like this.

Project management skills are also useful for Fashion and Textiles, whether you currently work within each industry or are completely new to either or both.

Learn more about caring for fabrics and how to design a great garment. During a Fashion course like this, you will be able to put your knowledge of the latest clothing and interior trends to good use – while those who have a flair for textiles will be able to craft stunning, one-of-a-kind pieces.

Topics may include colour and silhouette, fashion awareness, illustration, and garment construction, among others, and you will learn to hone or develop your own personal style. Problem solving will come in useful too, as will merchandising or sales experience.
