Kilts? Well, yes, but also Fashion!

If you’re wondering how you can turn your love of fashion and design into a career, our 3-week Summer Study program at Herriot-Watt University in Scotland is perfect for you.

Named International University of the Year by The Sunday Times, Herriot-Watt boasts state of the art facilities where you can learn knit, print, weave, or fashion product development from industry leaders.

A Leader in Fashion

Since inventing the kilt back in the 1500’s, Scotland has been killing the fashion game. Long-known for its tradition of craftsmanship and high-quality wool and cashmere, Scotland has become a leader in contemporary fashion, as well: Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Ralph Lauren are just a few clients of Scottish textile and fashion companies.
