Unlike any other program, CCS’s Fashion Design program integrates both apparel and accessories design so you gain head-to-toe preparation for the fashion industry — from daywear and couture to footwear and handbags. Conceive, make and merchandise your original fashion apparel and accessories all in a single program.

Developed in collaboration with Detroit-based company Shinola, offers unparalleled opportunities for real-world experience, including sponsored project studios and access to industry experts.

Our fashion business coursework instills a solid understanding of marketing designs and managing a fashion brand to create designers who inspire and lead. You’ll know what it takes to move from initial concept and design to the full range of fabrication techniques, and on to supply chain management and distribution.
