FASHION & RELATED TECHNOLOGIES
The fashion program prepares students for employment in the field of design and production or merchandising and provides upgrade opportunities for currently employed personnel. Upon completing the degree or certificate requirements, students gain proficiency in clothing, construction, fashion illustration, pattern making, draping, computer aided fashion design, and manufacturing. Students completing the requirements for the merchandising option will also gain proficiency in presentation techniques, planning, promotion, fashion coordination, advertising, and sales. Competencies will be assessed by portfolios and exhibitions of original apparel design and garments.
