    Originally from Taiwan, Anna Hsiao is currently pursuing Merchandise Product Development at FIDM. We were able to get to know a little bit more about her in an interview. Learn about her FIDM Experience and career goals below.

    Where are you from? How do you like living/studying in California?

    你来自哪里?你对学习和生活的加州有什么感触?

    I’m from Taiwan. I really enjoy living in California because the weather here is super nice.

    我来自台湾。我非常喜欢住在加州因为这里的天气真的很好。

    When will you graduate from FIDM and what is your major?

    你什么时候会毕业,专业是什么?

    I will graduate on March, 2017. My major is Merchandise Product Development.

    我将在2017年三月毕业。 我的专业是行销产品开发。

    Why did you choose to study at FIDM?

    你是怎样会选择在FIDM学习的?

    Only FIDM has a Merchandise Product Development major, which teaches both Fashion Marketing and Design.

    只有fidm 才有的行销产品开发的专业,而且会教服装行销跟服装设计。 

    Where did you study/work before FIDM

    FIDM之前你在哪里学习或工作?

    I was attending high school in Taiwan before FIDM.

    我来fidm之前在台湾上高中

    What do you like the most about FIDM?

    你最喜欢FIDM哪里?分享一下你的成功故事

    I like my major’s curriculum at FIDM. My classes include some business development classes such as retail environment, marketing and brand development, fashion merchandising, assortment planning, etc. Merchandise Product Development also has some fashion design classes that teach you how to use Illustrator to draw a design, how to sew a garment and make a pattern. From these classes, I learned a lot of information in the fashion industry. Compared to the Marketing major, I have more skills than them, such as sewing, patternmaking and product developing.

    我喜欢fidm的课程。我的课程里有关于商业发展的课,例如零售环境,行销品牌开发,时尚商品分类计划等等。MPD专业还包括服装设计专业课程,这些课程会教你如何使用illustrator去画服装设计,如何缝纫,如何打版。我真的从这些课程中学到很多关于服装产业的内部信息。跟行销专业学生们比起,我的技能会比较多一点,例如服装缝纫,服装打版,产品开发等等。

    How do you think FIDM will prepare your career in the future?

    你觉得FIDM是如何准备你的未来事业发展?

    Since the Merchandise Product Development major is very flexible, I not only do a product developer’s job, but also a buyer’s or marketer’s job. Next quarter I’ll have the brand portfolio class that I’ll start to build my own portfolios for two brands. My portfolio will be very vital for my future career.

    MPD的专业非常灵活,我不仅仅可以在将来做产品开发者的工作还能做采购者或者营销者的工作。下学期我将会有品牌作品集的课程,这个课程需要我去为两个品牌去做两个系列的作品集。我的作品集将会在我未来求职的过程中起到至关重要的作用。

    Anything else you’d like to add?

    还有什么独特见解你想要和大家分享的吗?

    I learned how to make a dress form pattern from FIDM DEBUT Graduate, Tomy Huang, and every single piece of my design that I made is fitted and accurate. Learning how to make a dress form pattern really tells you why patternmaking is very important and how to make your ideal design.

    我从Tomy Huang那边学会做人体模型的打版,我做出来的每一件衣服都非常的贴身跟准确。学会如何去打各种型号的版会让你知道为什么服装打版是那么重要而且还会让你知道如何去做你理想中的设计。
