Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Nora Barry from Civil and Public Service Jobs to give some advice for people considering this job:
|A keen interest in current affairs, a willingness to travel and an acceptance that this role is a lifestyle choice are all necessary. I believe having lived abroad for a period of time and experiencing different cultures are also an advantage.|

Have you a flair for fashion? Are you creative, innovative and business minded? Do you want to bring innovation and business acumen to the fashion industry? Do you want to develop fashion products and use photography and film to promote your business idea on-line? Then, this is the course for you!
Students on this new course will explore their own creative strengths. The first year will focus on investigating and generating ideas through a wide range of drawing and mark-making methods. Students will also explore fashion trends and will be taught how to assemble mood boards and product boards. A sketchbook will be required at all times and will be assessed as part of the students’ personal development.
There is a fashion design project in each of the three years, which is very much concept-driven. In the first year, this project involves the making of a prototype through paper or the re-design of an existing garment. In the second year the emphasis will be on designing a marketable fashion product – this may be a garment or a fashion accessory, it could be a range of fabrics / wallpapers / soft furnishings. At this stage the student will have defined their own niche in the fashion market and will focus on strengthening their chosen career path with the guidance of expert staff into their third and final year. Fashion history and culture supports and contextualises the studio practice throughout the programme.
Photography and moving image will be taught as it is used and required by the fashion industry and to promote the students individual products through media channels. Photography is taught in first year and in addition to formal projects, students are expected to treat the camera as an extension to their sketchbook, gathering inspiration and generating ideas throughout the three years. Moving image is taught from second year and will add to an exciting range of skills through which the student can pitch their product.
The visual identity, branding and packaging of the product along with expertise in retailing and marketing, will ensure that the student takes their product to market in the most professional, cost effective and contemporary manner.
