About

MA Fashion Communication: Fashion Journalism is for writers and editors who want to shape the future of their field.

Overview

Over the last two decades, fashion has broadened its influence across the creative industries and many art forms. In parallel, new technologies have transformed how the fashion sector communicates with consumers. With the industry in this state of transition, it's more important than ever to analyse the impact of new media and to explore the needs of new consumers. 

MA Fashion Communication at Central Saint Martins embodies these paradigm changes. It explores the discipline through new, cutting-edge digital platforms and media as well as more traditional modes of communication. The course helps you to develop the professional skills to join the next generation of fashion theorists, analysts, writers, journalists, image-makers and visual communicators. It also helps you to anticipate and respond to fluid, fluctuating global communication channels.  

MA Fashion Communication offers three pathways. Fashion Image is for innovative image-makers, while Fashion Critical Studies offers an academic approach to the study of fashion. Fashion Journalism is aimed primarily at writers and editors. It offers the opportunity to focus on fashion writing for different media and markets. You will explore writing for traditional magazines and newspapers, alongside digital publishing including blogs, websites, e-commerce and social media. 

While much of your time and teaching is concentrated on your pathway study, there are opportunities to work with your colleagues from other pathways and courses. This structure reflects the collaborative approach of the fashion industry. Across all pathways, the curriculum focuses on the realities of the modern industry as well as fashion theory, ensuring your work is informed by current knowledge and debates in your specialist area.
