On May 18, 2018 the High School of Art & Design held its annual fashion show to a sold-out audience. We would like to thank our generous sponsors, The Alumni Association and The Parent Teacher Association for their continued support. Please scroll below to see highlights from the show.
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.
