The Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design
The graduate program in Fashion Design at Drexel opens career opportunities in the industry for those with varying levels of experience or educational backgrounds. Graduate students represent varying design specialties and academic degrees such as liberal arts, fine arts, fashion design and business, all of whom share a passion for continued education and professional development.
The curriculum combines a broad understanding of design concept, context and theory with hands-on technical skill in the design and construction of clothing. The goal is for students to learn how to develop products that answer physical, aesthetic, psychological, and social needs within the contemporary fashion context and in consideration of industrial limitations. This integrative approach provides a well-rounded foundation for a broad range of employment opportunities in the fashion industry, as well as in related areas of education, retailing, costume design and curatorial work with historic clothing and textiles.
