Fashion Merchandising

Fashion Merchandising

Fashion isn’t only about designing clothes. The business side of the industry can often be overlooked. However, trend analyzation, promoting, apparel quality assessment, and more, are key aspects to succeeding in the fashion world.

Harper’s Fashion Merchandising program offers you courses like fashion history, fashion forecasting, textiles, and business math, and hands-on learning experiences with the annual Student Fashion Show and student-run boutique Studio V, to prepare you for a career in fashion coordinating, fashion show production, styling, or store managing.

Earn a career-ready degree

The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree is designed to prepare you for immediate entry into this career field. Coursework in the AAS may also prepare you to transfer to a four-year college or university.
