Fashion Apparel and Accessories will provide you with the opportunity to research the reasons for major changes in the fashion industry over the last 150 years as a background to understanding today’s industry. The fiber, fabric, leather, and fur industries are the primary suppliers of fashion. They are the foundation upon which the merchandisers and marketers of fashion build their ideas and designs that will answer the needs and wants of the customer. The accessories industry “finishes” our look on a daily basis. With the newest technology, these manufacturers are expanding fashion market segments and opportunities for careers within the fashion industry.
The following topics will be covered throughout the semester:

  • Fashion Development
  • Textiles: Fibers, Fabrics, and Trimmings
  • Leather and Fur
  • Accessories
  • Cosmetics and Fragrances
  • Producing a Fashion Show
  • Exploring a Career in Fashion
