Fashion Design, Advanced Study
Students in the Associate of Arts (A.A.) 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.
