Lee Harding

Senior Lecturer


I am senior academic in the department of Art & Design, presently in with the dual role of Course Leader of the BA Fashion Design (Digital) program and Department internationalisation lead.

My teaching approach has been to explore effective pedagogical methodologies to global design education, cultivating a collaborative environment that empowers students to explore and build their identity as a fashion designer.


I approach Fashion Design an important tool that reflects personal identity, often mirroring social and cultural experience of the student. The ‘studio’ is placed at the heart of this journey, becoming an incubator for collaboration, community, critical enquiry, a place that students will build confidence exploring traditional and progressive product outcomes. My position enables me to create space for students to explore and question, personal narratives and interests, that will accumulate in work that has meaning.
