Programme Content






Renowned for its established international reputation for shaping creative, talented designers demanded by today’s fast-paced fashion world, this programme is based on project and studio work, with exceptional links to the fashion industry.  You will be required to conduct research and negotiate design briefs, which involve producing a collection or product range around a theme of their choices, and work on a unique project which is shared between students in HK and the UK, known as Fashionmap.




After graduated from Higher Diploma at HKDI, I continued to study a Fashion Design top up degree, where we had the opportunity to attend industry seminars and workshops, and to participate in various competitions to deepen industry knowledge and experience. After getting my bachelor’s degree, I worked in a German fashion brand. I founded our own fashion brand and later established my own fashion brand, REDEMPTIVE.
