Fashion & Textiles

To fully enhance and upgrade our Creative Arts Programme, apart from the well-established art & design subject, YWIES Shanghai Gubei has launched the Fashion & Textile Programme and has invited Mr David Leung, a world-renowned designer, a creative force of Versace and Adjunct Professor at Parsons School of Design to be the Director of Fashion Design, which makes Yew Wah stand out as one of the rare schools which can offer full-time, immersive and systematic Fashion & Textile Programme to high school students. This programme is included as a subject in the A Level Curriculum.

Mr Leung is a world-renowned designer, creative director, professor at top design schools and a coach of professional fashion portfolio. He has over 30 years of extensive experience in the fashion industry with assignments in Milan, Paris and New York City. As an all-rounded professional in the fashion industry, Mr Leung will lead Yew Wah students to go through the self-discovering journey and reach a bright future in the programme of Fashion & Textile.

Design and Technology

The course of Design and Technology has also been extended from IGCSE to A Level Section, allowing students to further develop their interests and skills in this subject.
