I can’t decide on a pathway for fashion (design or business orientated)

I’m currently completing a UAL foundation diploma in art and design.
I’m very creative and love the design aspect, however I’m not so keen on the sewing.
I am also academic and wouldn’t want to have a career that is purely creative.
I’m unsure of the career options in the business side. I’m interested in the high end, luxury fashion that comes with a high salary.
I’m not concerned about long hours and would love to travel and possibly manage a team. I’m a natural leader and problem solver.
My concern about fashion business is not having the opportunity to be creative! I want a high earning, high profile job with huge rewards.
My other concern is I’m unsure which degree would be most beneficial. My parents are very supportive of me but fees are something I’m highly concerned about regarding university.
