If you have an eye for fashion, their fashion design program would be ideal for you! To ensure their training is current, they team up with top fashion designers to give students a better insight of the fashion industry. By the end of the program, students are able to create their own collections and market them to consumers. Their collections will also be featured in a JCI fashion show.

Fashion Business
This program is more in depth compared to the fashion design program. It teaches all you need to know about fashion merchandising, buying, marketing, retailing, history, illustration, and styling. It will also teach you how to identify the types of textiles used in the industry and to produce your own fashion show. If you are serious about fashion design or starting your own related business, this should be a program to take in conjunction with the fashion design program.
