Fashion Program at Mesa College

Designed for the student who is interested in a fashion related career. Each student gains an understanding of opportunities and a working knowledge of the various phases of the constantly changing fashion industry. The program provides the opportunity to specialize in one of three areas: Fashion Merchandising, Fashion Design or Fashion Consulting. Fashion Merchandising prepares for beginning positions in sales, management, buying, visual presentation, promotion, and wholesaling for both men and women. Fashion Design develops skills in the creation of imaginative finished garments. Technology skills that will be learned include sketching, sewing, draping, pattern making and presentation. These skills will prepare people for entry level positions in manufacturing, designing, and the home sewing industry. Fashion consulting prepares students to work as a personal shopper or wardrobe consultant.
