Lingerie and Swimwear Design Short Course

Course description

This course covers the design processes of lingerie and swimwear enabling you to design your own capsule collection. You will also gain valuable insights into the lingerie and swimwear industry, allowing you to develop a suitable retail concept.

Please note that this is a design based course and does not include any garment construction work or pattern cutting.

Taking short courses keeps you in the creative mindset with other like-minded people. They give you inspiration and encouragement. When trying to do it by yourself, its hard to keep the momentum going. And you can use the facilities here and the library - so you can keep being in that creative environment. Which is really important I think. - Heidi, Lingerie and Swimwear Design student.
