The BA (Hons) Fashion Marketing offers a unique blend of strategic fashion marketing content with specialist knowledge in areas including fashion communications, branding, buying and fashion show production.

This programme will develop you as an innovative, visionary marketer with an excellent understanding of fashion marketing and promotion.

You will build your understanding of the contemporary and historical issues in fashion as well as the design and cultural contexts in which fashion marketing operates.

Combining marketing and promotion theory, with analysis of market information, you will develop innovative marketing solutions to become media-savvy with the ability to work autonomously on a wide range of fashion marketing projects.

You will have the opportunity to undertake practical projects and work with students on other fashion design programmes to produce fashion shows, events and photo shoots.

Our recent fashion show, ‘Sustainable Fashion’, was produced by Fashion Marketing students and featured outfits designed by our Fashion Design students to support the Blue Cross, a pet charity which helps sick, injured and homeless pets.

The event showcased clothes that had been given a ‘second chance’ via the catwalk to highlight that pets should not be viewed as disposable commodities or ‘fashion breeds’.

The Filippo Corsini Polo Scholarship

The Regent’s polo team has enjoyed considerable success over recent years, with our novice team winning second place in the Schools and Universities Polo Association competition in 2014. From March 2017, Regent’s will host its own annual invitational tournament.

To support the team’s continuous improvement, from 2017 the University will award two polo scholarships each year to students who show both the polo skills and the leadership acumen to help the team’s development.

The scholarship is named in memory of Regent’s student Prince Filippo Corsini, an accomplished equestrian and showjumper, in recognition of his sporting prowess and exceptional leadership skills.

Prince Filippo, the heir to a noble Florentine family, was in his first year of study for the BA (Hons) International Business at the University when his life was cut short by a tragic accident in 2016. The scholarship celebrates Filippo’s life and the promise he showed, both on and off the field.

Regent’s Vice Chancellor Professor Aldwyn Cooper described Filippo as a young man who ‘Epitomised the type of student we seek to recruit to Regent’s. His application to study, enjoyment of sport and leadership in many fields were outstanding.’

Filippo’s tutor, Samantha Lee, said: ‘He proved not only to have a keen business mind, but was also a motivational and supportive team player and an inspiring leader. Filippo achieved a first-class result in the team-working and leadership event and his team named him Most Valued Player.’
