Fashion Design And Merchandising

Fashion Design/Merchandising programs are for those who are aiming to be a part of the fashion industry, whether as store managers, fashion editors, visual merchandisers, buyers or fashion designers, of course. Both Fashion Design and Fashion Merchandising provide an understanding of the theory, philosophy and principles behind the various aspects of fashion as well as a knowledge of the various fashion trends that have occurred through time. However, Fashion Merchandising focuses more on buying fashion merchandise, including courses in marketing and business negotiations, while Fashion Design focuses on creating fashion merchandise, with courses such as pattern design and garment construction
