If you have a keen eye for design, a passion for fashion, and want to develop the skills to turn your ideas into reality, this degree is perfect for you.

The Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge required to become successful fashion designers. The program is tailored to provide a balance of practical and theoretical skills required in the fashion industry. Students will learn the history of fashion design in Nigeria, fashion illustration, textile science, garment construction, digital fashion design, fashion marketing and branding, fashion photography, fashion collection development, and fashion show production.

In addition, students will gain practical experience through industry internships and collaborate with industry experts in fashion business and entrepreneurship, sustainable fashion design, fashion merchandising, fashion styling, visual merchandising, and textile and fabric printing.

The program will equip graduates with the technical, creative, and practical skills required to enter and succeed in the fashion industry. Students will have the opportunity to develop a professional portfolio of their work, showcase their collections through fashion shows and exhibitions, and participate in industry collaborations.


The fashion industry is one of the most globalized industries in the world. Fashion designers may work in one country but have their products manufactured in another, and then have them sold all over the world.
