LCF launches postgraduate course for fashion entrepreneurs

The London College of Fashion is launching a new postgraduate course for the 2015-16 academic year, aimed at helping designers to set up and run their own businesses.

The course, which will sit within the college’s recently opened Fashion Business School and will start in October, will also assist entrepreneurs to develop and launch new products.

It will target designers that already have significant work experience and will have a flexible approach, so they can run their businesses alongside studying. Teaching is scheduled around the fashion calendar and selling cycles.

There is also a pay-as-you-go option, which means students can take up to five years to complete the MA course, and all course units are available as short courses that can be taken one by one.

The course will build on the experience of the Centre for Fashion Enterprise, which has been supporting emerging fashion design talent for the past 10 years. CFE is based at and part-funded by the LCF, and has worked with designers including Richard Nicoll, Peter Pilotto and Mary Katrantzou.

Wendy Malem, dean of the LCF’s Graduate School and director for the CFE, said: “A unique opportunity to learn how to set up and develop a fashion business while actually doing it in tandem is just what young entrepreneurs or designers really need to get started.”
