Pregraduate Year Studies in Fashion Design

The Fashion Design graduate plan of study begins with prerequisite classes in drawing, design, construction and patternmaking skills to prepare students for graduate coursework. Students having an undergraduate degree in fashion, art or design may be waived from some of the prerequisite courses via portfolio and transcript review and a skills test.

Graduate level classes in Materials Exploration, Fashion Design I and Draping introduce students to materials, textile manipulations and experimental silhouettes, and issues of sustainability and ethical practice. The digital technologies rapidly reforming fashion visual communication are explored in Presentation Techniques.
