Challenges and rapid advancement opportunities set in an exciting atmosphere of change, fast paced business decisions and competition are offered to you in a fashion career. Take part in the action where style becomes a way of expression in apparel and accessories as well as interior design. A career in the fashion industry could include management, designing, buying, marketing or promotion, sales, customer service or visual merchandising.
The curriculum has been designed with the help of employers in both the apparel and interior design industries. Many students achieve management positions upon graduation or shortly thereafter because of the specialized course work and individual effort. Instruction is based upon lectures, labs, internships, speakers and a variety of conferences and field studies in fashion centers such as New York City. These activities offer the student a chance to interact with key industry professionals and develop an invaluable employment network.
Two majors are offered in the Fashion program. Upon successful completion of the Fashion/Design program students will receive an AAS degree. Students with a shorter term educational goal may receive a diploma.
Fashion/Design emphasizes career development along with transfer options for students planning on attending a four year college. Graduates interested in apparel design or interior design degrees usually transfer to a four year program. Contact a DMACC Fashion/Design instructor, counselor or advisor for transfer planning assistance.
