Students in the Advanced Fashion Design program spend nine intensive months becoming professional fashion designers. Mentored by industry pros, students design their very own runway collection and learn how to launch a fashion label. The elite experience culminates in DEBUT, our annual runway show that attracts over 10,000 people across three days. Advanced Fashion Design program students have gone on to become founders of world-renowned couture, ready-to-wear, and action sports brands; as well as head designers and creative directors for global apparel companies. Designers Monique Lhuillier, Kevan Hall, and Leanne Marshall earned their degrees and launched their careers at DEBUT.
The Advanced Study Program in Fashion Design develops specialized expertise in the student's individual area of study. The curriculum is structured to provide the opportunity to explore and analyze new ideas, and study industry related principles of design and construction as well as to apply industry techniques.
