    What is the programme about?
    This unique Bachelor of Arts in Design in Fashion Knitwear and Textiles, offers students the opportunity of training in areas specific to fashion knitwear design and production within the clothing sector and also knitted textile design, focusing on areas which include accessories for fashion, interior accessories and fine art textiles. The popularity of knitwear design within the existing internationally recognised BA in Fashion Design programme is evidenced by the previous success of students in recent knit competitions including the RDS Competition in Knit and Crochet (2011), Persil Fashion Awards (2010) and international competitions including Mittel Moda.
     
    ​Recent students who have specialised in knitwear include Rebecca Marsden and Fiona Nugent with past graduates including Orlaith O’Connor and Katarzyna Wypych showing their graduate knit collections in Shanghai (2010) and Washington DC (2010). There is an increased demand for knit specialisation in fashion at both national and international level, and this programme aims to meet this growing demand. LSAD is unique in being the only third level college in Ireland to offer training on the Shima Seiki industrial knitwear machine. This new programme also offers students the exciting prospect to work on live, collaborative projects in conjunction with the knit sector and a work placement within industry.
