Global Fashion Studies

Global Fashion Studies prepares students for careers and higher education in the exciting and ever-changing fields of fashion, apparel, accessories, merchandising - and more! In this two-year program, students learn about all phases of the fashion industry, and they explore college and career opportunities.

Global Fashion Studies year one focuses on merchandising, and year two focuses on marketing and retailing, including mastery of retail customer serviceskill standards set by the National Retail Federation and NOCTI Retail Trades Performance Standards. Students learn through specialized software, hands-on projects, lectures and guest speakers, videos, field trips, and work-based learning experiences such as job shadowing and internships. Through a year-long entrepreneurship project, students work together to design a product, conduct market research and produce and sell their accessory designs. They also create a professional fashion portfolio showcasing their best work.

After completing Global Fashion Studies, students may enter the workforce or advance their education at 2- or 4-year colleges such as Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and Laboratory Institute of Merchandising (LIM) in Manhattan, Herkimer County Community  College, and the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in California.

Students in the Global Fashion Studies program also have the option to spend 10 days with their teacher touring Paris and London. They travel  to various fashion venues such as fashion museums and a perfume factory, take guided fashion walks and experience London Fashion Weekend.
