Description:In a time when we are so removed from where our clothing comes from, it takes a special individual to want to pursue fashion design- a person who understands how rewarding it feels to make something with their own hands. Someone who possesses an innate desire to create and is determined to bring their unique vision to the world. In the Core Fashion Design Program, you’ll start with something as abstract as a sketch and turn it into a collection. We’ll provide you with the most advanced and relevant curriculum, while training in an environment that’s similar to a real fashion design company, so you can make your mark on the world as a designer.

This 26-week fashion design program consists of in-depth theory, practical knowledge, additional open lab time and hands-on, creative projects. To ensure that your training is current and cutting edge, we’ve teamed up with top fashion designers from Alexander McQueen, Aritzia, lululemon, Helly Hansen, Kit and Ace, and OAK + FORT, giving you access to some of the most design-oriented minds in the city. By the end of the program, you’ll showcase your debut collection to a live audience at the JCI Graduating Fashion Show.
