NORTH WEST SCHOOL OF DESIGN offers a variety of part time courses but our main focus is the fulltime training of future fashion professionals in either Fashion Design and Fashion Management & Communication (&buying)
Both these 3 year fulltime courses have been developed with the vision that South African Fashion education not only needed to globalize, but also needed to adapt to the changes within the global fashion industry. Both these fashion degree equivalent courses have been developed with focusing on globalization of communication, supply and manufacturing in the fashion industry.
To succeed in today's fashion world, designers need to do more than sketch garments, buy fabrics and meet with clients. NORTH WEST SCHOOL OF DEISGN sets a strong foundation for future designers, fashion professionals and entrepreneurs who find it more than second nature to do that little more, to learn that little extra, to read that little longer and to adapt to an industry that in two years from now will be different from the industry we know today.
