Learn what it takes to go from concept to consumer.

I have the vision to move fashion forward. Now I need the skills.

Your sense of style brings something new and fresh to the world of fashion. You crave being part of this fast-paced, competitive industry, and you want your work to grab the attention of individuals and retailers alike.

In our Fashion Design degree programs, you can learn both traditional and computer-generated design techniques for making stylish apparel from start to finish. You can also gain the marketing, entrepreneurial, and creative skills needed to promote your designs in the global fashion market. Our programs take hard work, focus, and commitment, but in the end, you’ll be equipped to pursue a career doing what you love.

I want to learn from Fashion Design experts.

Our faculty know what’s needed to succeed in the Fashion Design industry. They’ll share this expertise in the classroom, offering one-on-one mentorship and guidance as they push you to be bold, to experiment, and to take risks with your designs. Our programs start by helping you build foundational skills in garment construction, fashion illustration, textiles, and pattern making. Then, using industrial sewing machines, computer-aided design software, and other professional-grade equipment and technology, you can learn how to apply these skills to create pieces as unique as you are.

Along the way, you’ll explore key industry practices and workflows, like creative brainstorming, market research, trend forecasting, material sourcing, technical design, and product development. Your Fashion Design courses will also teach the planning, problem-solving, communication, and self-promotion skills required for careers in fashion design. All around you will be other talented, creative, and inspiring individuals, with whom you can form long lasting personal and professional relationships.

I’m ready to pursue my goals in fashion.

From the start, your Fashion Design program will be filled with hands-on projects designed to build skills highly valued in the fashion industry. Later, in our Portfolio courses, we’ll guide you in refining and presenting your work in a professional format that showcases your strengths. You’ll also have chances to complete an internship, participate in local and national fashion organizations and events, and even display your work in fashion shows.

As a graduate, you’ll be prepared to pursue entry-level roles in fashion design and development, and our Career Services advisors can help you find opportunities that match your talent and ambition.
