Content and Structure

MA Fashion Retail Management aims to stimulate creative solutions for multi-channel fashion retailing, and to exploit the design and communication potential of the physical and virtual store. This course bridges a gap between retail disciplines, reflecting a shift in the fashion industries’ demands for a multi-skilled workforce; notably marketing management, information and communication technologies (ICT) and design. It encompasses digital and new media practices to encourage multi-channel practices, interactive communications and innovative solutions within the fashion retail environment.

You will be able to combine cutting-edge media approaches with retail formats and brand management to develop appropriate solutions for specific fashion retail environments. You will have the knowledge to critically evaluate trends in consumption, as well as broader societal, economic and regulatory changes, technological development, retail formats and their application to the fashion retail environment. You will also examine and analyse the influence of lifestyle retailing and multi-channel retailing and explore the concept of customer experience with experiential and sensory design from real to virtual situations. Your creative expertise will be utilised to design and implement creative technologies fitting with the retail brand and the convergence of the physical and virtual store.
