The fashion industry’s need to navigate the complex demands of globalization and technology requires a creative approach that connects business, design, and innovation. This course is designed to provide students interested in the fashion industry with an opportunity to understand the essential connections between creativity and business. Individual and group projects, business and interdisciplinary readings, and connection to industry professionals will expose students to the fashion business cornerstones—brand, product, consumer —as well as explore fashion’s essential role in history, the arts, and popular culture. Because the only thing constant in fashion is change, the Practicum will also examine current industry trends, including digital and social media, social responsibility, retail transformation and the rise of entrepreneurship. The course will be taught by the Guess Distinguished Visiting Professor in Fashion and Fashion Business and a member of the Gallatin faculty. Admission is by permission of the Visiting Professor.
