This dynamic program introduces students to the technical knowledge and skills needed to design, produce, purchase, promote and sell merchandise and accessories.

Learn about the elements and principles of design, fabrics and textiles, the use of color and texture, retail theory, visual merchandising, sewing and pattern making.

Transform these skills into wearable garments, elaborate sets and window displays, and participate in various EVIT events such as the annual Spring Fashion Show, Cosmetology Masquerade and Block of Dreams. Qualified students also have the opportunity to participate in job shadowing or internships during their second year of the program.
