Drexel's top-flight Fashion Design program is nationally recognized. The rigorous curriculum consists of a unique six-month co-op experience that complements coursework in conceptual design, presentation skills, CAD, and manufacturing methods. The curriculum covers all facets of fashion design, from men's, women's, and children's wear, to swimwear and couture. Students are prepared for careers in fashion design, styling, advertising, and computer-aided and technical design. Small studio classes simulating the professional environment represent the core of a student's education including final critiques by practicing designers.
In addition to coursework, students explore and participate in the vibrant fashion industry. Each year, Fashion Design students submit their designs to national and international competitions. A study abroad program at the London College of Fashion during sophomore year offers an international perspective of the fashion world. And what would a fashion education be without a fashion show? Students conclude their senior year studies with the presentation of their collection in the Drexel Fashion Show, a beautifully staged event featuring professional models and prominent media coverage.
