Do you want to take the first steps towards fashion design studies? Why not start on the right foot by enrolling on this dynamic Saturday course at one of the best fashion colleges in the world? You will be guided through core designing skills and will leave with a solid foundation and the confidence to continue to develop your designs.

This course is an excellent preparation for studying fashion at higher levels. Previous students have progressed to other Central Saint Martin's courses, such as the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design.
