In fashion, it's not just about what you know. It's who you know.

Holmesglen Fashion courses prepare you for the fast paced and ever changing world of fashion with 'real world' experience a key component of your studies. See yourself being mentored by industry heavyweights from Target, Alice McCall, Puma and Etiko or accepting an internship in Paris or London.

Located close to the Melbourne CBD in Southbank, Holmesglen's fashion hub is near suppliers, stockists, design head offices, exhibitions and major local festivals, so you won't miss attending events, or industry visits. Our staff has both industry and international design education experience; bringing a wealth of knowledge and contacts to you while you study our courses.

Our classes are small and our ongoing investment in equipment ensures you are learning the skills and techniques that the industry demands. As a graduate with proficiency in the latest industrial production equipment, Gerber digital software for pattern making and Computer Aided Design software, your work and knowledge will stand out in a competitive global industry. You will understand the fashion design process, manufacture and production, and your role and responsibility in the global supply chain.

There are many employment options in the fashion world, so if you are looking for a real career in fashion, Holmesglen is the right choice. We liaise closely with industry in the design and content of our courses, and our focus is to mentor you to engage with this very competitive industry. We will equip you with the confidence, knowledge and skills you need to secure the fashion job you want, but more importantly we will give you access to fashion professionals and real insight into the industry.
