About Fashion Design
Working in the modern fashion clothing industry, whether in the design or business side, requires an eye for artistry as well as an understanding of consumer lifestyles. As a Fashion Studies student, one can take classes ranging from apparel design to fashion illustration to merchandise management. Since fashion reflects the personality, technology and priorities of our times, you’ll find that these courses play a vital role in preparing one for a range of careers including fashion designer, store manager, fashion buyer, costume designer, boutique owner, stylist and blogger among others.
