You will undertake an entrepreneurial project that engages with the fashion and/or textiles industry. You will critically analyse fashion business models, supply systems and production methods. Your research, analytical, evaluative and practical skills will be significantly linked through self-directed inquiry.

You may work on projects in teams with other students and will gain experience in interacting with an external company or organisation that is related to your area of inquiry.
