UC Irvine International Programs Announces Two-Week ‘Fashion Design Management’ Program

Immersive program allows students to explore a career within fashion design

IRVINE, Calif. – June 18, 2018 – Whether pursuing fashion design as a photojournalist, textile designer, writer or stylist, a cross-functional understanding of principles and hands-on experience with various elements of fashion management is an unparalleled advantage for aspiring professionals. University of California, Irvine Division of Continuing Education has introduced a custom designed program in Fashion Design Management, offering students a comprehensive program exploring the many facets of the specialty.

The full-time, two-week, non-credit program is offered on the UCI campus and offers both international and local students the opportunity to learn through applied coursework, group work, field trips, and classroom instruction. Designed for high school and university students (15+), the Fashion Design Management program encourages native English-speaking students and visitors from abroad to work together on the design, marketing, merchandising and visual arts elements of the profession.

“Fashion Design Management is a highly-desirable area of study for ambitious learners interested in exploring a wide range of skills within the field,” said Jeanne Kimura, Program Coordinator, Professional Custom Designed Programs. “Giving students an in-depth view of both the business and creative aspects of the fashion industry, the program culminates with a fashion show and certificate ceremony.”

Registration is currently open for the program running July 29-August 11. Applicants must be at least 15 years old, and in high school or university. Students will take a guided tour of the UCI campus, enjoy engaging group activities, and take site excursions for a deeper exploration of select areas of study.
