Otago Polytechnic Fashion And Design

Otago Polytechnic’s Bachelor of Design (Fashion) has won international recognition for producing innovative, skilled, industry-ready professionals. Our graduates now make a major contribution to the growth and direction of the New Zealand fashion industry.

This studio-based programme encourages and facilitates innovative design and production through creative exploration, applied research and collaborative enterprise. Our courses are developed to reflect current industry practice, extend students’ market knowledge and explore enterprise opportunities. Students will study advanced patternmaking, garment construction and materials, developing a clear understanding of the collaborative and holistic nature of design projects. Design communication, context and cultural themes are fundamental to all Otago Polytechnic design degree streams; fashion students will share core courses in these areas with students of communication, interior and product design.
