The fashion industry relies on emerging innovative design leaders, like you.

Design the Future of Fashion

Want to see your creative vision come to life in tomorrow’s clothing and apparel designs? Our Fashion Design faculty pushes your critical design thinking in the classroom, while nurturing your craftsmanship in the workroom -- so you graduate equipped to design the future of fashion.

Open Your Mind to Innovation

With the San Francisco Bay Area as your fashion muse, you’ll explore the entire design process, learning to question traditional industry practices in our sustainable design courses, and expanding your ability to form imaginative solutions in our conceptual design courses. To further round out your candidacy as a fashion designer, you’ll learn everything from fundamental knitting and draping skills to inspired illustration and experimental fabric-manipulation techniques.

Set Your Fashion Career in Motion

You’ll also build a career-shaping body of work. San Francisco Bay Area internships with such companies as Levi Strauss & Co, Athleta, and TEA Collection enhance your learning experience, while our Annual Fashion Show celebrates our students’ bold and innovative talent. Equipped with both practical know-how and ongoing inspiration, you’ll be prepared to ignite change on the runway -- and everywhere else your creativity takes you. Are you ready to engage in the future of fashion?
