Department of Fashion

The fashion industry is an ever expanding and innovative business. The A&D Fashion program allows students to develop and practice the design and technical skills necessary to be competitive designers. Students will develop intermediate skills in illustration, garment construction, computer aided design, textile design, product marketing and global production. Moving from a 2-dimensional design to a 3-dimensional realized unique vision, will allow students to develop critical thinking through the creative process. This program will expose students to the expansive career opportunities in the fashion world. Upon completion of the program students will have a competitive portfolio for college applications.


Student Alivia Matthews wins shoe design competition

In Spring 2018, Alivia Matthews won the Stuart Weitzman shoe design competition.  The contestants were tasked with designing shoes to address social issues.  Alivia's design addressed the issues of slavery and lynching.  As a winner, her shoe design was created by Stuart Weizman and displayed at the New York Historical Society.
