Do you have what it takes to become a fashion designer?  Are you interested in pursuing a career in the Fashion Industry?  The Marist Summer Pre-College Program in Fashion Design provides you with an opportunity to "try on" some of the exciting elements of the fashion business while attending an intensive thirteen day program on the beautiful Marist College campus.  Upon completion of the course, high school students will receive three college credits along with the opportunity to explore the exciting world of fashion design.

The Fashion Summer Institutes are housed within the Marist College School of Communication and the Arts.  The curriculum is taught by the faculty of the highly regarded Fashion Program at Marist.  Faculty members all have extensive experience in the fashion industry and related fields.

The focus of the Summer Pre-College Program in design will be in apparel construction and preparation. Additional studio and classroom course work may include trend, color, fashion figure drawing and the history of fashion.  Field trips to New York City will include visits to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and visits to the fabric and design showrooms of 7th Avenue in order to further enrich the student’s understanding of the career opportunities available to fashion designers.
