Welcome to Fisher College's Fashion Design Program located in the heart of historic Boston and only moments away from some of the most famous designer boutiques worldwide. If designing your own fashions is your career goal, then join us to begin exploring all aspects of this exciting industry. Here you will learn the steps to creating a successful garment from sketching your original ideas to the actual drafting of patterns. Assembling your creations in your Clothing Construction and Draping courses will provide you with the skills you need to build a career in this fulfilling profession. In two years, as a Fisher Fashion Design student, you could earn an Associate in Science Degree. If you would like to expand your interests even further in fashion merchandising and management, you may continue your education and earn a Bachelors Degree in Management with a Concentration in Fashion Merchandising.
As a member of our Fashion Design Program, you will be given the opportunity to acquire technical skills that enable you to take a basic garment and transform it into a whole new look with your own signature styling. To develop your creativity and inspire you to seek individuality, we provide you with current fashion news and access to the latest trend information. We occasionally step outside of the fashion lab and take you on field trips that include visits to top firms in the Garment District of New York City, meetings with local fashion designers here in Boston, and shopping excursions to find that perfect fabric for your latest design. On some sunny fall days, you just might find your instructor leading your class to Newbury Street to see firsthand what the world's top designers are up to. We also bring design experts directly to you as guest speakers who will share their experiences and show you their work.
Each of you will be guided throughout your education by our dedicated fashion faculty and your own personal advisor who will listen to your future plans and place you in courses that allow you to reinforce the necessary skills that will enhance your progress. Throughout your education, you will be developing and collecting examples of your work to compile in a portfolio as evidence of your abilities.
