Description

The curriculum of the B.F.A. degree program in Fashion Design includes the basic skills of construction, flat pattern, draping, and presentation, all with an emphasis on design. Important related topics include textiles, fashion drawing, fashion marketing, and computer-assisted design. Students learn to develop their ideas on paper, then translate them through pattern skills into three-dimensional forms and, finally, into finished designs. Academic requirements and electives balance studio and didactic courses each semester.
