The MA Fashion Curation course at University of the Arts London (UAL) is a theoretical and practice-based exploration of all aspects of fashion curation, past, present and future. Fashion exhibitions have become increasingly visible in department stores, galleries and the wider community. This shift represents the growing status of the curator as a central cultural mediator and MA Fashion Curation prepares students for a career in this.
A key aspect of this course is the practical skills and experience gained in staging a live fashion-related exhibition. This group project presents students with an exciting collaborative opportunity to explore a range of approaches, mediums and practices that constitute the roles required in realising a curatorial project.
Masters graduates have an advantage in the employment market, obtaining work in a wide range of vocational and academic fields related to fashion. MA Fashion Curation could lead to a breadth of exit profiles including Fashion or Art and Design Curator, Arts and Events Management Assistant and Administrator or Consultant.
Graduates of the course have gone on to work in many roles within the industry, at organisations including the British Council, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Fan Museum Greenwich. The MA also provides an excellent preparation for higher level research degrees (MPhil or PhD), with an increasing number of graduates undertaking research, writing and teaching within fashion related subjects.
