Mporium: The Collective
MPorium: The Collective is an entrepreneurial boutique operated by Marist fashion merchandising students with the goal of providing students hands on experience in the planning, buying, and marketing aspects of the fashion business.
Functioning as a retail laboratory, The Collective gives students enrolled in Retail Entrepreneurship the opportunity to delve into the nuances required for running and maintaining a student run retail fashion enterprise, including the challenges and responsibilities of running a retail operation: Human Resource Management / Staffing, Customer Service, Marketing, Visual Merchandising, and Merchandise Planning & Control.
The Collective by MPorium moved to a permanent space on the ground floor of the new Steel Plant building November 2018. The Collective is a rotating concept shop featuring themed curated collections of items featuring top trends in the marketplace today.
