Fashion Merchandising at Fanshawe College is all about engaging our students in the world of fashion. We make learning exciting and fun with hands-on experiences in visual merchandising, business management, and retail technology. Fashion Merchandising is where fashion and retail merchandising meet! Courses in this program focus on retail management, brand development, buying, textile technology, photo styling, event/fashion show production, and fashion technology. You'll learn all about visual merchandising, marketing, promotion, fashion buying, and the software that runs the fashion and retail industry. Students will organize, design, promote and market live fashion shows/events throughout the year, and get hands-on experience in the real world, with two paid co-op work terms!
