Second Year Studies in Fashion Design

The final year of Fashion Design graduate study is geared to realization of a graduate thesis collection focused on individual research on a particular fashion design problem. In the Professional Portfolio course, the student creates traditional and digital presentations of work directed to the segment of the industry in which the student wishes to start their career. CAD Patternmaking and Couture Techniques courses hone making skills. Business of Fashion or a Design Research elective deepen the students’ understanding of their thesis focus. Select faculty are available to advise independent studies in the student‘s area of interest. The year culminates in the annual student fashion show and attended by industry professionals, the Drexel community, family and friends.
