Fashion Communication and Promotion at Norwich University of the Arts is a dynamic, future thinking course that embraces a path of creativity with purpose. Our students are passionate communicators, driven to create change in contemporary industry and embrace tackling issues around diversity and sustainability head-on. This is best shown through the unique, creative and strategic outputs you can see on display here from our 2020 graduating cohort.
Industry engagement is an integral part of the course. This year saw leading industry guests working for brands such as Stella McCartney, Adidas, Mango, Harper’s Bazaar, Matches, River Island and Teen Vogue visit to share their experience and insights with the student body. Additionally, students gained valuable experience working with high profile brands such as Adidas Speziale, Nike, Hunter, Wonderland and Boden – bringing a wealth of new skills and industry insights into their studies.
