Unlike any other program, CCS’s Fashion Design program integrates all aspects of fashion design education in the foundation year. This includes both apparel and accessories design, from daywear and couture to footwear and handbags. Conceive, make and merchandise your original fashion apparel and accessories all in a single program.

Developed in collaboration with several globally recognized fashion brands, this program offers unparalleled opportunities for real-world experience, including sponsored project studios and access to industry experts.

Our fashion business coursework instills a solid understanding of marketing designs and managing a fashion brand to create designers who inspire and lead. You’ll know what it takes to move from initial concept and design to the full range of fabrication techniques, and on to supply chain management and distribution.
