MA Fashion Curation is unique: there is no comparable course.
What makes MA Fashion Curation unique?
MA Fashion Curation is unique: there is no comparable course. It is an academic course with a strong practice component and it attracts students from diverse subject disciplines and occupations. Our alumni now have jobs at the V&A, Somerset House, the Fan Museum, the British Council, the Simone Handbag Museum in Seoul (curated by Judith Clark) and work as successful freelance curators, archivists, writers, stylists and photographers.
What key advice would you give to someone applying for the course?
I would recommend that potential students visit as many museums and exhibitions as possible and develop a critical vocabulary to review them.
