Why Choose to Study Textiles?
GCSE Textile Technology
"Textile designers and graduates find employment with companies such as Nokia, Ford, Nissan in addition to a growing number of design jobs in knit, weave, print etc around the world. The textiles industry in the UK supplies the highest quality of fabrics to the luxury brands in fashion e.g. Burberry, Dior. The global textiles industry is thriving and our graduates are placed in companies all over the world. Scientists and technologists developing high tech fibres and smart textiles collaborate with textiles designers to create the desirable high performance fabrics for companies such as NIke and Puma. Textiles graduates also go on to work for the Trend Prediction companies relied upon by global brands such as Marks and Spencer for seasonal direction. etc. And of course a number of textiles graduates set up their own labels as designer makers in textiles, fashion, product and interiors e.g. Alice Temperley.''
