Put Your Style to Work with a Fashion Degree

When people think of a career in fashion, they think of high-end designers and models on catwalks, but there is so much more to fashion than this. After that model walks down the runway, that garment gets redesigned for the mass market, patterns are created, fabrics are selected, price points are met, the garments are made, distributed, marketed, and merchandised. It is a long walk from runway to the consumer and a fashion degree will help you every step of the way.

The Art Institute of Raleigh-Durham's, a campus of South University, Fashion & Retail Management Associate of Applied Science degree can help you get a foot in the door, no matter what part of the fashion industry you would like to work in. In general, fashion management focuses on the retail segment and the business knowledge it takes to run a retail business. You may find yourself working as a visual merchandiser in a large retail store, or choosing next season's designs for a small boutique.

The Art Institute of Raleigh-Durham will help you put your fashion sense to work, while giving you a firm background in industry-standard technology and all the latest trends.
