Looking for a career in a field that is never dull, always changing, and requires you to constantly re-invent yourself? Consider a career in fashion! The Art Institute of Tampa offers a Fashion & Retail Management program that focuses on the business side of fashion. There is more to fashion then just cutting and sewing a garment. Ever wonder how a Dolce & Gabbana dress goes from the runway to a clothing rack at Neiman Marcus? That’s were Fashion & Retail Management comes into play.
At the Art Institute of Tampa, students will be revealed to the fast-paced industry that requires talented and creative professionals who have a great sense of style and a solid knowledge of the business world. The Bachelor’s degree program prepares students with the knowledge needed to be successful in the business side of fashion.
The coursework explores the history of fashion through the years, designers in the industry, textiles and how they are produced, why retailers mark-up/down merchandise, and the process of owning or running a boutique including sales and promotions, store management, event planning and product and sales development. Students gain hands-on experience through various opportunities throughout their degree participating in local fashion shows, visual window displays, and even producing their very own fashion show.
The Art Institute of Tampa is a proud sponsor of Fashion Week Tampa Bay. Students have the opportunity to participate in this annual event by assisting designers backstage, dressing the models and/or assist with the production side of a fashion show.
