The world of fashion is very hands-on. Our courses are designed to prepare you with the same experience. Through our simulated display windows, you can learn to design eye catching displays, style mannequins, and prepare marketing presentations. During the associate degree program, you will complete an 8-week externship!
All of our fashion faculty members have worked in the fashion industry and bring to the program an understanding of what it takes to succeed. Their first love is for fashion and they bring that energy to the classroom.
