The Fashion Design AAS degree prepares students for a career as a Designer or an Assistant Designer. The degree provides field work experience and hands-on training to learn the four basic methods designers use to create collections, aesthetics and style trends to provide artistic and commercial perspectives on current fashion, and the basics of garment construction and textiles in creating and retailing an original collection. Students present their designs in a senior fashion show and complete a professional portfolio that demonstrates their abilities to prospective employers.
