Online learning:

All online learning courses include weekly chat sessions with your tutor and other students on the course, which are conducted through an interactive seminar (called Blackboard Collaborate). The chat sessions will include text and voice/video chat, as well as an opportunity to 'share' your tutor's desktop so that s/he can navigate you through websites, powerpoint presentations and other work. These sessions are essential to attend each week, so please check the times of the course when you book and take into account any local time differences.

You may also be required to undertake weekly assignments between sessions. These will be housed on our Workflow website, along with additional resources and discussion forums which can be used to interact with fellow students in between classes. You may be expected to dedicate between one - two hours a week to these self-study projects. A full technical specification is listed in 'Materials'.

Tutor information

Nikita and Tina Sutradhar founded luxury clothing brand MIUNIKU. Growing up in the city of Mumbai, the designers were a part of rapid globalization, and many of its factors greatly influenced the way they lived and perceived things. Thus it could be said that they have always had an international outlook, which became even more polished from the time they have been in London. In 2009, Tina completed her Bachelors degree in business studies in Mumbai and later that year, went on to do a short course in Fashion marketing at London College of Fashion. In the summer of 2010, Nikita completed a diploma in Fashion design from Raffles International in Mumbai. Later in 2010, both of them went to study a Degree in Pattern Cutting, progressing onto a BA (Hons) Womenswear, at London College of Fashion. They graduated in June 2013. They are currently based in London and Mumbai. The brand name comes from the nick names given to the designers by their parents. Tina - Miu and Nikita - Niku. The overall brand aesthetic is a balance between clean lines and graphic details, mixing minimal and maximal elements. In May 2014, they were awarded the Special Jury Prize at the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers 2014. Tina and Nikita also received the Fashion Innovation Award at London college of fashion (July 2013) and the ISKO™ Denim Diffusion Award (July 2013). They were Semi- Finalists of the H&M Design Awards 2014.
