“Best facilities in the UK”

- Dame Vivienne Westwood


According to our honorary graduates, including leading fashion designers and experts, we have the best design and production facilities for textiles and fashion in the UK.

We have the largest knit, weave and print studios in an academic setting. Students have access to fully equipped clothing workshops, spacious studios with individual work space, technical workshops and laboratories, state-of-the-art production equipment and computer aided design (CAD) suites.

Our facilities range from craft through industrial to cutting-edge advanced technologies and are used for education, consultancy and research.
